Abstract
Precision medicine aims to tailor prevention and treatment to individual data. Although different markers can be used (e.g. transcriptome or proteome), its rise is closely linked to that of genomics, owing to the henceforth reasonable cost of DNA sequencing. The enormous datasets thus generated can be exploited due to remarkable advances in bioinformatics and information sciences. However, beyond the technological endeavor, humanities and social sciences also play a central role to redefine health and illness. The precision medicine unit at CHUV gathers stakeholders from these various domains in order to demonstrate the utility of precision medicine and catalyze its integration into healthcare, to the benefit of the patient.
