Precision Medicine and Health Consortium (PMHC)

The Precision Medicine and Health Consortium capitalizes on the expertise within the scientific community, health systems, payor industry and others to make novel discoveries and therapeutic advances in precision medicine, and translate these to improve healthcare.

The PMHC joins together faculty with a common purpose and connects faculty with expertise in precision medicine to address health problems using an interdisciplinary approach. It is our belief that a interdisciplinary group will more quickly advance research, educational, and outreach activities.

Members of the PMHC also bridge the gap between genetic research discoveries and application in patient care. Precision Medicine is a national priority and this group strives to keep on the forefront of this evolving field.
