FasterCures SmartBrief | Jan 22, 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 to widen Americans' access to personalized health information. "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," Obama said during his State of the Union address. "A precision-medicine initiative is following us where the science is already taking us," said FasterCures Executive Director Margaret Anderson.
