Eight in 10 American adults support the Precision Medicine Cohort Program and up to 54% might participate if asked, according to a recent survey by the National Institutes of Health. The federal program aims to engage one million or more Americans in a national research study to help prevent and treat disease based on individual differences in people’s genes, environments, and lifestyles as part of the president’s Precision Medicine Initiative. “We are excited about engaging participants in this historic research effort,” said Kathy Hudson, NIH deputy director for science, outreach and policy and an author of the study.
