Description:

NIH Precision Medicine program (ALL of US) has launched since May 2018. It has stimulated a strong wave of phenotypic and genotypic data collection across the nation. While this effort may bring exciting findings, the following questions have been raised:
• What is the definition of Precision Medicine?
• How should the quality of phenotypic data be well guarded? What would the best way for neurologists to be a part of the endeavor?
• How can we prepare our next generation neurologists to utilize and interpret the data to be available from ALL of US?
During this workshop, attendees will utilize this platform to discuss these critical issues.

Objective(s):

  • Discuss and define Precision Medicine, and formulate practical ways to implement the definition in the field of neurology.
    To update the latest progresses in the ongoing NIH program of All of US.
    Bioinformatics approaches in understanding human diseases.
