This comes less than 18 years after the announcement that the human genome had been fully sequenced. It was a milestone wrapped in a promise; a promise that became known as “precision medicine.” But has that promise become reality?
In this podcast we turn to five leaders in their respective fields who’ve been intimately involved with this emerging technology. We ask them them to not only contrast what precision medicine is and may become, but also to help us clarify what holds promise and what’s just hype.
I mentioned the voices you heard in this podcast come from leaders in their respective fields. Taken together they represent a deeply informed and rich perspective on the state of precision medicine at the very beginning of 2018.
In order of their appearance in the podcast they are:
Eric Topol, MD • Scripps Research Institute
Mike Joyner, MD • Mayo Clinic
