Focused issue on “Toward Precision Medicine in Neurological Diseases”--Guest-Edited by Drs. Jin-Tai Yu and Shi-Wen Wu

Posted On 2016-05-25 17:24:11

The goal of precision medicine is to deliver optimally targeted and timed interventions tailored to an individual’s molecular drivers of disease. Neurological diseases are promisingly suited models for precision medicine because of the rapidly expanding genetic knowledge base, phenotypic classification, the development of biomarkers and the potential modifying treatments.
