    Agree.

    Have you seen the Collins-DePinho interview on Precision Medicine:

    http://www.c-span.org/video/?322089-1/doctors-francis-collins-ronald-depinho-cancer-research

    Focuses on cancer breakthroughs--discovery of molecular underpinnings of disease & targeted combination therapies but Collins believes these & the model apply to other diseases as you said...

    Collins also reviews current NIH Budget & grant application issues...

    DePinho lauds technology-- cognitive computing, IBM Watson & decision support systems for clinicians...

    Both strongly support international collaborations & empowering patients with knowledge.

    Good Q& A's.
