The Summer 2014 edition of Pitt Med, entitled “Tailor Made – Trying on Personalized Medicine,” takes a closer look at personalized medicine and UPMC’s five-year, $100 million plan to bring it to Pittsburgh.
Dr. Jeremy Berg (Director of the Institute for Personalized Medicine, Associate Senior Vice Chancellor for Science Strategy and Planning, Health Sciences, and Pittsburgh Foundation Professor of Personalized Medicine and Computational and Systems Biology) is a key figure in this effort. In the article, “Stitching the Pieces Together,” he and the other leaders of this plan talk about it’s progress and the practical, ethical and clinical questions that arise with personalized medicine.
Dr. Berg is also featured in the cover article, “Trying on Personalized Medicine“.
