The USP:

  • Emphasis on collaboration between researchers, clinicians, genetic counselors, informaticians, and other healthcare professionals to advance the field.   
  • Diagnostics play a central and foundational role in precision medicine. They are instrumental in the identification, characterisation, and monitoring of diseases and conditions, and they provide the essential data necessary for tailoring medical treatments and interventions to individual patients.
  • In summary, diagnostics are the cornerstone of precision medicine, guiding healthcare providers in making informed decisions about patient care. By providing valuable information about an individual's unique biology and disease characteristics, diagnostics enable the delivery of personalized and effective medical treatments, ultimately leading to improved patient outcomes and the advancement of healthcare as a whole.
