Personalized medicine can mean many different things to healthcare professionals.  For the purposes of our investment focus areas we'd like you to think of the term more specifically.  Here are a few more specific applications areas that we view as near term and longer term beneficiaries.

The beneficiaries of gene-precision medicines

Targeted drugs attempt to silence specific over expressed proteins.  However such drugs often only work with specific genetic markers.  The market for identifying and testing for these markers in the drug development and clinical setting is one area of focus as it has high value especially in rich clinical targets such as oncology, cardiovascular, infectious disease, diabetes, etc.

This area encompasses companion diagnostics and the in Vitro diagnostics market already benefitting from precision (personalized) medicine. 

Future of Medicine:  Genetic Predisposition and Disease Prevention

The longer term goal of identifying genetic susceptibility to disease will only be enabled by Economic Genomics.  Having the right investments in this area will rival having the right investments at the start of the PC and internet eras.
