This comes less than 18 years after the announcement that the human genome had been fully sequenced. It was a milestone wrapped in a promise; a promise that became known as "precision medicine." But has that promise become reality?
In this podcast we turn to five leaders in their respective fields who've been intimately involved with this emerging technology. We ask them them to not only contrast what precision medicine is and may become, but also to help us clarify what holds promise and what's just hype.
