Sorry for being so literal, but what exactly is "personalized medicine"? And will they use mice or humans?
Certain physical characteristics, namely genetics, mean that certain people respond well to treatments whereas others do not. At the minute we just try different treatments until something sticks. Personalised medicine will aim to identify which treatments work for which individuals, so we can know in advance whether a treatment is likely to work or not.

Makes me want to change my vote. Nah, not really, but in seriousness, it's good to see a big push for transparency of medical research.
I've been feeling compelled into maniacal laughter often when I read the medical news of late.
But seriously, folks -- it's nice to see some change.
Along the same lines
Pardon my suspicious mind, but if that's true, I'm wondering just where that transparency stops....or does it include its citizens privacy, too? Not trying to be a Maytag, I just have trust issues with TPTB.
I'm sorry, I've turned into a thread stopper.
