Precision medicine is the personalized tailoring of health care to individual patients. These characteristics can include environmental and social factors, personal health history, family history, genetics, and more.
The overall goals of the Precision Medicine Program are to support clinicians, researchers, patients, and their families for patient-centric, multidisciplinary effective care. The precision medicine program in the Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) serves as one of the University of Utah's centers for personalized health care-related initiatives and also coordinators clinical care and research efforts from outside programs. Many of the services and support provided through the precision medicine core contribute to the development of clinical and research tools and practices that benefit Utah citizens and foster collaborative partnerships with other health care-related organizations nationwide.
