In support of this, this program leverages a wide variety of technologies and experts in precision medicine, precision public health, genomics, and other “‘omics,” laboratory medicine, and biomedical informatics to move away from a “one size fits all” approach to health and wellness. Through the provision of state-of-the-art genotyping approaches, delivery of genomic medicine and pharmacogenetic testing in multiple clinical settings, multi-faceted patient and provider education, and assessment of clinical outcomes with genomic implementation, the Precision Health Program aims to implement innovative genomic medicine-based strategies into clinical care and health solutions in the community.

UF Precision Medicine Program

Pharmacist talking to patient

A growing number of UF Health patients benefit from individualized drug prescribing based on their unique DNA sequence thanks to efforts led by the UF Precision Medicine Program (formerly the Personalized Medicine Program). As we learn more, precision medicine approaches are expected to span across additional UF Health clinics and practices. Since launching in 2012, the program has developed one of the nation’s top pharmacogenomics research programs, led genomic clinical implementations, and developed multiple education programs that are training current and future leaders in precision medicine.

UF Precision Public Health Program

An adorable little toddler boy sits in his mother's lap in a volunteer run medical clinic and sticks out his tongue for the nurse.  She is unrecognizable as she leans in to look down his throat.

Precision Public Health is “providing the right intervention to the right population at the right time”. A Library Guide created by this group lists resources, datasets, and tools available to researchers in this area. In a research setting, Precision Public Health can be used to create programs that are tailored to underserved community groups for whom focused attention has the potential to significantly improve health outcomes.


Center for Data Solutions

The Center for Data Solutions provides sophisticated technical and analytical support for health sciences research. Data Solutions at its core is a customer-service oriented entity, producing high-quality, efficient results and analysis for investigators, healthcare stakeholders and, most importantly, patients and the community.

All of Us Research Program

The All of Us Research Program is an NIH funded effort to collect data from one million participants in the U.S. and build one of the most diverse health databases in history. Collected data will be used to improve precision medicine for all.

Genotyping Services

Clinical and research genotyping services are provided for investigators within and outside of the University of Florida through the University of Florida Health Pathology Laboratories’ Molecular Diagnostic Laboratory and the University of Florida Center for Pharmacogenomics and Precision Medicine Genotyping Core Laboratory.

UF Health Pathology laboratories

Molecular Diagnostic Laboratory

The University of Florida Health Pathology Laboratories’ Molecular Diagnostic Laboratory is a CLIA-certified clinical diagnostic facility responsible for the development and performance of molecular diagnostic tests for nucleic acid targets found in a variety of settings in medicine.

UF Center for pharmacogenomics and precision medicine

Genotyping Core Laboratory

The University of Florida Center for Pharmacogenomics and Precision Medicine Genotyping Core Laboratory offers a wide range of services for research projects. These services can be provided as a price per sample or price per project depending on the needs of the researcher.


first tuesday of each month | 9:00 A.M.

Precision Health Forum

The goal of this monthly forum is to bring together faculty, trainees, and students to facilitate discussion around prevailing precision health issues and initiatives, share ideas, and foster collaborations toward precision health advancement. Events in the series will be held the first Tuesday of the month at the same time and are available remotely by Zoom.
