Thanks to the extraordinary advances in how we collect and understand biological data, we are moving away from a one-size-fits all approach in medicine. Fast paced research is driving our increasing ability to tailor treatment and prevention strategies to the individual – this is known as precision medicine.
Precision medicine focuses on using information about a person’s genes, proteins, physiology and environment. Genomic sequencing and other ‘omics’ such as transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics, as well as imaging, biosensory, and other physiological information.
This combined with clinical databases and highly accurate preclinical models is driving the novel discoveries advancing precision medicine.
