From Precision Medicine to Precision Public Health: Beyond the Pandemic

the word Medicine with an arrow to the word Public Health and the word Precision over all of them with a background of connected people and several COVID-19 viruses

Precision medicine and precision public health are emerging fields that use genomics and other big data technologies to provide more targeted interventions at the individual and population levels. Precision medicine can be thought of as delivering the right intervention to the right individual at the right time, while precision public health can be simply viewed Read More >

Accelerating Precision in Public Health Surveillance and Response

When our communities face a health crisis, the research, clinical, and public health worlds come together and collaborate. Public health programs drive toward prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of the population, but they need the support and guidance of data-driven research behind them every step of the way. While most of the data needed to accelerate Read More >
