The Paul Torrens Health Forum
 
Precision Medicine: Customizing Healthcare
 
Precision Medicine accounts for individual patient differences such as genes, environments, and lifestyles in creating both treatment and prevention strategies. Advances in Precision Medicine have already led to treatments that are tailored to an individual’s genetic makeup or the genetic profile of an individual tumor. In our first Health Forum of the new academic year, experts will explore the latest developments, financial models, and policy implications associated with this scientific revolution.
