President Barack Obama used some of his State of the Union oratory to lay out a grand vision for “precision medicine” and announce an initiative to realize it. “I want the country that eliminated polio and mapped the human genome to lead a new era of medicine—one that delivers the right treatment at the right time,” he said. The initiative would help to “give all of us access to the personalized information we need to keep ourselves and our families healthier.”
