Personalized medicine

Section edited by Lotfi Chouchane

This section aims to provide a platform for research that will revolutionize patient care through the use of novel molecular predisposing screening, diagnostic, prognostic and pharmacogenomics. Advances in human genome research are opening the door to a new paradigm for practicing medicine that promises to transform healthcare. Personalized medicine will impact the way that medicine is practiced.
