What is Personalised Medicine?

Personalised Medicine is delivering the right treatment to the right patient at the right time. Doing this well requires an improved understanding of human biology in both health and disease, for which there are two related aspects:

  • Understanding the typical response to a specific treatment
  • Understanding individual variability in response, and the factors that affect it

Genetic data, when coupled with data on molecular and disease outcomes, offer a potentially powerful tool to improve our understanding in both these areas.

The CPM is a partnership between the University of Oxford's Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics (WHG) and St Anne’s College, Oxford. It is a communication and engagement vehicle for students, academics, clinicians and the public to explore the benefits and challenges of Personalised Medicine.
