Genomics and Personalized Medicine Breakthroughs genome mapping is now enabling a breakthrough in medical innovation -- personalized medicine. What does this mean for patients? We can now identify predispositions to disease, predict how we metabolize drugs, and figure out what kinds of treatments we may respond to, and even determine when a drug may give us an adverse reaction. All medical specialties benefit from human genome intelligence -- oncology saw the first impacts -- but advances are now being seen in cardiology, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatric diseases, gastroenterology, rheumatology, immunology and other areas. This video covers the areas that genetic medicine is impacting and where the future of genomic medicine is heading.
