What is Precision Health?
Precision health uses advanced tools and technology to discover the genetic, lifestyle, and environmental factors that influence a population’s health and provides personalized solutions that allow individuals to improve their health and wellness. U-M is leading the way to more effective and comprehensive approaches to precision health—from discovery, to treatment, to prevention and implementation. Our Precision Health program actively bridges these areas by promoting multidisciplinary collaboration among faculty across the university and providing the tools and resources they need to expand their work.
Eight to 12 grants of up to $80,000 each will be awarded to early-career investigators (postdocs, fellows, residents, trainees, doctoral students) for innovative precision health research projects.
