Precision medicine is an approach to patient care that allows doctors to select treatments that are most likely to help patients based on a genetic understanding of their disease. This may also be called personalized medicine. The idea of precision medicine is not new, but recent advances in science and technology have helped speed up the pace of this area of research.
The Center for Precision Medicine Research (CPMR) at Asia University is a multidisciplinary team consisting of basic research investigators, clinicians, data scientists, application developers and A.I. whose objective is to build a precision medicine research platform that amasses, extracts and curates meaningful information from patient health care records and integrates it with genetic information derived from a genome. The CPMR develops and applies advanced bioinformatics tools to identify genotype/phenotype associations and genotype/treatment relationships in order to facilitate discovery and signally improve healthcare outcomes through the personalization of diagnostics, treatment and disease prevention.
