DHMRI Advances Personalized Medicine in North Carolina

August 09, 2012

Personalized medicine is transforming healthcare by precipitating a shift to a model that takes into account individual differences and the influence of genetics and the environment. The advantage is more effective treatments, an enhanced ability to predict risk for chronic disease and the opportunity for earlier medical intervention. The David H. Murdock Research Institute (DHMRI) is […]
