University of Michigan’s Precision Health is building a biorepository of genetic data for future research

The University of Michigan Precision Health program is launching MY PART, a genetic testingĀ programĀ aiming to collect a more diverse and holistic biorepository for future research. In an interview with the Michigan Daily, Jennifer Smith said this project is a better way to get holistic health information from patients, which will aid staff in conducting more accurate and beneficial research:

We think of genetics, and it (seems like) all geneticists, they only care about your genetic predisposition, but honestly, Precision Health is so much more than that. Being able to integrate genomics into social factors or environmental factors, really understanding the person as a whole, is very important.
