Launched in 2016, the Institute for Precision Health builds on UCLA Health’s record of translating scientific discoveries into bedside care. Your DNA could hold the answers to better treatments, therapies, and even cures for a wide range of medical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Scientists now know that the best way to understand, prevent, and treat diseases is to design a personalized approach using your unique genetic code. This new approach is called precision health, and it means better health outcomes for all.
