Harnessing and integrating the power of molecular technology to tailor healthcare is at the cutting edge of modern clinical medicine. This is known variously as personalised, precision or targeted medicine.

The Centre for Personalised Medicine is a partnership between the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics and St Anne’s College. It was formed as a communication and engagement vehicle for students, academics, clinicians and the public to explore the benefits and challenges of personalised medicine.
