Recent technological advances have enabled assembly of a wide range of data about an individual’s genetic and biochemical makeup, as formed by their genes, environment and lifestyle. While medicine has always had personal and predictive aspects, precision medicine allows health and disease to be viewed at an increasingly fine-grained resolution, attuned to the complexities of both the biology of each individual, and the variation among the population.
ACOLA’s precision medicine project explores the current trends in precision medicine technologies and explores the role that a broader implementation of precision medicine capabilities may play in the Australian context.
