“All of Us” Study Looks at DNA, Environmental and Lifestyle Effects on Health
A new study from the National Institute of Health will look for one million volunteers to see how the combined variables of DNA, environmental and lifestyle factors affect the health of Americans.
The 10-year-long study will help develop precision medicine that can help create treatments more individualized for patients. Currently, precision medicine is most often used in cancer protocols but researchers hope one day this precision can branch into treatment for diabetes, heart disease, and more.
