Advances in Precision Medicine and Translational Research: PPH and CCTS Pilot Award Symposium

On December 2, 2015, lead investigators of interdisciplinary teams will present their research toward advancing customized healthcare. Each team is the recipient of a seed grant from University of Utah's Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) and Program in Personalized Health (PPH) pilot program designed to combine talent, resources, and perspectives from across disciplines in order to spur translational research related to personalized health.

The PPH/CCTS symposium precedes the Frontiers in Precision Medicine "Exploring Science and Policy Boundaries" symposium to be held on December 3-4, 2015, at the University of Utah.
