Precision Health

Treatments as unique as our patients.

More precise data means more power to cure. Fueled by our increased understanding of the very building blocks of human life, Weill Cornell Medicine is leading a revolution in modern medicine. 

By bringing together diverse streams of information spanning genomics, social determinants of health, environmental exposures, electronic health records and wearable device data, our scientists gain greater insights into each patient’s unique genetic ecosystem, allowing us to create a more complete picture of a patient’s health. Weill Cornell Medicine’s diverse patient base puts us in a unique position to create individual treatment strategies that are more effective and curative.

Close collaborations among the Meyer Cancer Center, the Englander Institute for Precision Medicine, and researchers in Molecular and Genomic Pathology have established Weill Cornell Medicine at the forefront of precision medicine in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
