Conducting Research in Precision Medicine: Three Perils and Two Prospects

Nigel Paneth, professor in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics and the Department of Pediatrics and Human Development at Michigan State University, discusses three perils of precision medicine:

  1. Big data does not mean good data.
  2. What population is being studied?
  3. What time period is of interest?

He also presents two potential positive outcomes:

  1. High-quality research
  2. Research aimed at prevention
