Precision Medicine Initiative Cohort Program

Francis S. Collins, M.D., Ph.D. is Director, National Institutes of Health. He just published “It was just a year ago that President Obama outlined his Precision Medicine Initiative (PMI) to enable a new era of medicine through research, technology and policies that empower participants, researchers, and providers to work together toward development of individualized care. NIH is driving major components of PMI, including the PMI Cohort Program, a landmark longitudinal research study of one million or more U.S. volunteers to expand our understanding of ways we can improve health and treat disease.”
