The idea behind personalised medicine is both simple and powerful: 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, than is currently the case. There are two related aspects. The first is to understand the typical response to a specific treatment. The second is to understand individual variability in response, and the factors that affect it. Genetic data, when coupled with data on molecular and disease outcomes, offers a potentially powerful tool to improve our understanding in both these areas.

The Centre for Personalised Medicine is a partnership between the University of Oxford's Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics (WHG) and St Anne’s College, Oxford. 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.
