Our modern healthcare system requires high quality, highlyspecific treatments for common diverse pathologies including cancer, obesity, diabetes, neurodegenerative, cardiovascular, and autoimmune diseases. Development of personalized medicine for these diseases is a major challenge currently faced by scientists and clinicians. Personalized medicine-based approaches target specific treatments and therapies for a particular individual based on that individualâs molecular data or genetic makeup, and represents a fundamentally different approach from the conventional practice of prescribing general drugs for patients who share similar disease symptoms
