See video of MD2K presentations at NIH workshop

Earlier this month, Dr. Santosh Kumar, MD2K Director, and Dr. Kevin Patrick, a center investigator from the University of California, San Diego, participated in the National Institutes of Health  Workshop on Building a Precision Medicine Research Cohort.

This workshop was held as part of a new Precision Medicine Initiative announced in January by President Obama. The $215 million initiative is aimed at accelerating patient-oriented biomedical research to give doctors more ways to tailor treatment to individual patients’ genetic makeup.

In the first video, Patrick presents the findings of the committee he co-chaired, of which Kumar was also a member.

On the second day, Kumar and Patrick participated in the discussions, moderated by NIH's Bill Riley, that focused on how mobile health technologies will be used to build the million-person research database.
