UF, CTSI host meeting of national network paving the way for precision medicine

IGNITE logoJust a few days prior to President Obama’s unveiling of the Precision Medicine Initiative, more than 60 experts from across the country assembled at the University of Florida to present and discuss their successes and challenges in developing methods for incorporating genomic information as a routine part of patient care in diverse clinical settings.

The meeting on Jan. 27-28, 2015, was one of three meetings convened each year by the national Implementing Genomics in Practice (IGNITE) network, which launched in June 2013 and is funded by the National Institutes of Health. IGNITE comprises six demonstration projects, a coordinating center, and numerous sites across the country. The CTSI’s UF Health Personalized Medicine Program leads one of the six demonstration projects.
