UM: Diverse Health Study Participants Wanted

posted by Alicia Gentile - 

The University of Miami is taking part in the National Health Institute's largest study to date.  The "All of Us" initiative aims to collect health data from one million people to help improve future medical treatment and create more precise medicine options based on people's genes, lifestyle and environment.

“There has never been an effort like this before,” said Dr. Stephan Züchner, the Southeast Enrollment Center's lead principal investigator (PI) who chairs UM’s Dr. John T. Macdonald Foundation Department of Human Genetics and co-directs the John P. Hussman Institute for Human Genomics. “Right now, medicine is practiced in very broad strokes. Most people with high blood pressure get exactly the same drug, based solely on their blood pressure. This study will begin to collect the data that will enable us to begin fine-tuning the therapies for specific health issues and specific populations.”
