The initiative in precision medicine seeks to transform medicine through advances in omic-scale diagnosis, therapy, engineering and computer science, imaging and data integration that enable insights into disease mechanisms. Appointments generally will be at the Assistant or Associate Professorial level and in exceptional cases at the very early Professorial level.
