For Immediate Release
Oak Brook, IL (USA) — In the October Special Issue of SLAS Technology, Guest Editors Soojung Claire Hur, Ph.D., and Deok-Ho Kim, Ph.D., (Johns Hopkins University; Baltimore, MD, USA) introduce a collection of articles and reviews focused on the advancement in technologies that are playing a major role in shifting healthcare closer to more predictive, preventative and personalized medicine.
Growing clinical evidence shows that prescribing patient treatments based on population average is no longer an effective healthcare strategy. Because of this, the movement towards personalized medicine has grown exponentially which necessitates a transformation for physicians to provide diagnostic tests and determine treatment protocol for the individual patient.
The following reviews and original research focus on how scientists and clinicians are integrating innovative technologies with existing clinical workflows to advance personal patient care:
