The Institute

The Institute for Precision Medicine (IPM) is reimagining the future of healthcare through integration of biomedical research into personalized clinical care and well-being driven by clear end goals. The over-arching goal of IPM is to fuel implementation and innovation through partnerships enabling researchers and clinicians to discover and exploit clinically actionable individual features including risk of disease, optimal treatment, disease course, and treatment response to help improve lives and reduce healthcare costs. IPM facilitates opportunities to access high quality clinical samples through constant and bespoke collection using a structured biobanking approach, develops precision medicine infrastructure at Pitt and UPMC. A key goal relates to the education of health care professionals, researchers, patients, and the public about the application of personalized medicine, ranging from technological advances through ethical considerations.
