In 2015, then-President Barack Obama launched the Precision Medicine Initiative to change treatments designed for the average patient into individualized treatments. The University of Arizona is one of four academic health centers chosen to participate because of the expertise in genetics, partnership with Banner Health and ability to reach underserved populations who have been historically omitted from data collection and research.
