ASH Precision Medicine Initiative

Precision medicine encompasses all approaches that use patient- and disease-specific information to prevent, diagnose, and treat a disease. The increasingly widespread use of genome sequencing and genomic profiling has significantly improved the diagnoses and treatment of hematologic diseases by identifying unique variants that can be targeted with gene-based targeted therapeutic approaches including immunotherapies.

Applying the principles of precision medicine to hematologic diseases is a priority for ASH, and specific research recommendation are described in more detail in the ASH Agenda for Hematology Research.
