Precision or personalized medicine continues to be an important topic with vast potential. It takes into account the differences in patients' genes, environments and lifestyles to prevent and treat disease. Advances in this area have led to powerful new discoveries and several new FDA-approved treatments, yet challenges remain to adopt these advances into clinical utility.
