The Institute for Precision Medicine will host a monthly lecture series to highlight advances in precision medicine research and personalized care both at Pitt/UPMC and nationwide. The inaugural lecture will be given by our own Anantha Shekhar MD, PhD, Senior Vice Chancellor for the Health Sciences and the John and Gertrude Petersen Dean, School of Medicine.
Dr Shekhar is a nationally recognized educator, researcher, and entrepreneur with major contributions in medicine and life sciences. He has many outstanding accomplishments in precision medicine research and personalized care including serving as founding director of the Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI)—a statewide institute within IUSM supported by an NIH Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) grant. Dr. Shekhar, in conjunction with being director of the Indiana University Precision Health Initiative, focused on transforming biomedical research, health care innovations, and the delivery of health interventions to enhance the prevention, treatment, and health outcomes of human diseases through a more precise analysis of the genetic, developmental, behavioral, and environmental factors that shape an individual’s health.
