Institute for Precision Medicine opens its doors
March 2013
SHARING OPTIONS:

NEW YORK—Weill Cornell Medical College and New York-Presbyterian Hospital have established the Institute for Precision Medicine at Weill Cornell and New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center. As a center of translational medicine, the new institute will focus on precision medicine, looking to replace the "one-size-fits-all" approach with more individualized treatments based on patients' own genetic profiles and medical histories, through the use of genomic sequencing, biobanking and bioinformatics technology. Preventive medicine will be a main focus as well, using genetic information to predict patients' disease risk and the medical or lifestyle changes that should be made to deal with those risks. Dr. Mark Rubin, a professor of pathology and laboratory medicine and professor of pathology in urology at Weill Cornell and pathologist at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell, will lead the institute.
