Listen: Mayo Clinic Radio 11/19/16
On Mayo Clinic Radio, Dr. Kathy Hudson, deputy director for science, outreach, and policy at the National Institutes of Health, explains the Precision Medicine Initiative. This year, Mayo Clinic was selected as the recipient of the $142 million grant to be the central biobank from the National Institutes of Health All of Us Research Program biobank (formerly the Precision Medicine Initiative Cohort Program). We also hear from patient Kathy Giusti, founder of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation, on how precision medicine changed the course of her own treatment. Also on the program, vascular surgeon Dr. Randall DeMartino discusses the common circulatory problem known as peripheral artery disease. And we talk with pediatric sports medicine specialist Dr. David Soma on why an increasing number of youth soccer players are seeking emergency treatment for concussions each year.
