BIO SmartBrief | Jan 21, 2015

President Barack Obama will ask Congress for funds to launch a "precision medicine initiative" to accelerate the development of personalized treatments against diseases such as cancer and diabetes and give all Americans access to personalized information needed to improve their health. "I want the country that eliminated polio and mapped the human genome to lead a new era of medicineā€Š -- one that delivers the right treatment at the right time," the president said Tuesday during his State of the Union address. Obama is expected to share details of the initiative in his fiscal 2016 budget, which will be released next month. Bloomberg Businessweek (01/20)
