The Realities of Personalized Medicine

Personalized medicine is upending hierarchies with consumer products that provide raw genetic data. Meanwhile, our exploding knowledge means treatments can increasingly be custom-tailored. Just this week The New York Times covered news about the ongoing federal project — with more than 200 scientists — that sheds light on what drives genes. How does personalized medicine change the way medicine is practiced? Is it possible to know too much? Does the US need a new regulatory framework for this unprecedented era? Margaret A. Hamburg, Elizabeth Holmes, and Harvey Fineberg discussed at last year's Spotlight Health. Watch the session above.
