Opportunities in Precision Medicine

On January 30, 2015, President Obama unveiled details about the Precision Medicine Initiative, a bold new research effort to revolutionize how we improve health and treat disease. Precision medicine uses information about the genes, proteins, and other features of a person’s cancer to diagnose or treat their particular disease.

NCI-supported scientists are pursuing new technologies and collaborations, and conducting new kinds of clinical trials, to help fulfill precision medicine’s promise.
