Opening in the fall of 2021, the University of Missouri's NextGen Precision Health Institute will accelerate innovations in precision health care outcomes for Missourians and the world.About the Institute
We’ve all known someone, a friend, a co-worker, a loved one — someone affected by aggressive diseases like cancer and Alzheimer’s. Although we’ve made key strides toward crucial treatments, these relentless conditions continue to devastate lives here in Missouri and around the globe. It’s time to do more.
Precision health will develop interventions for individuals and populations to improve health outcomes. By basing medical approaches on individualized factors, such as genetics, environment or lifestyle — rather than using a traditional one-size-fits-all approach, precision health can improve diagnosis, treatment and patient care more than ever before.Research & Solutions
