The Center of BioModular Multi-Scale Systems for Precision Medicine at the KU Medical Center, which develops rapid next-generation tests for a host of human ailments like cancer, stroke and COVID-19, recently earned $6.6 million in continued funding over the next five years from the National Institutes of Health's National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) as a National Biotechnology Resource (P41) Center.

The field of health care is moving from the inefficient, one-size-fits-all-patients' medicine of today toward the data-driven and customized medicine of tomorrow. We envision a future where diagnosis, prognosis, treatment and prevention are tailored to each patient's unique genetic and phenotypic information.

The vision of the Kansas Institute for Precision Medicine (KIPM) COBRE is to advance education and support discoveries that will transform health care in our region and beyond.
