Precision medicine researchers at UF Health are among the nation’s leading experts in studying pharmacogenomics and developing strategies to implement precision medicine into practice. Since 2011, UF Health researchers have been studying precision medicine from multiple angles and have been building an evidence-base which supports using genetic information to improve patient care. UF was among six sites chosen for the National Institutes of Health-funded Implementing GeNomics In pracTicE, or IGNITE, Network dedicated to supporting the implementation of genomics in health care and received more than $6 million in IGNITE I funding over five years. In 2018, UF was selected among five sites to lead IGNITE II and further advance the use of genomic information into medical practice.
