The articles in this session of Research Roundup look at precision medicine. Precision medicine delivers targeted treatments to specific groups of patients based on individual characteristics. It has held promise for many years as a tailored approach to both disease prevention and treatment that considers the differences in people’s genetic makeup. Genomic sequencing underpins the value of precision medicine in being able to better predict, prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases. Whilst there is an abundance of literature on precision medicine, we have tried to identify recent research that encapsulates these characteristics.
