On the one year anniversary of the launch of the Precision Medicine Initiative, President Obama participates in a panel discussion moderated by Dr. James Hamblin of The Atlantic on the importance of PMI in South Court Auditorium at the White House, February 25, 2016.
“Doctors have always recognized that every patient is unique, and doctors have always tried to tailor their treatments as best they can to individuals. You can match a blood transfusion to a blood type — that was an important discovery. What if matching a cancer cure to our genetic code was just as easy, just as standard? What if figuring out the right dose of medicine was as simple as taking our temperature?”President Obama, January 30, 2015
