Regulating Personalized Medicine

May 1, 2015

The Obama administration's recently announced "Precision Medicine Initiative" will benefit not just from advances in genomics—which allow for an entire human genome to be sequenced in less than a day—but also from significant advances in computing power, the prevalence of electronic health records and even from the 160 million or so smartphones in the hands of U.S. consumers. The plan? To have 1 million volunteers share their genetic data, biological samples and diet and lifestyle information, and to link the data to their electronic health records. That is not as far-fetched a proposition as it might seem.
