The Dangoor Centre for Personalized Medicine at the Azrieli School of Medicine of Bar-Ilan University is spearheading the research and application of Personalized Medicine through advanced technology, big-data analysis, and Translational Research protocol.
The Centre’s website, a gateway to the healthcare community, was created to promote the awareness, understanding, and application of Personalized Medicine by healthcare professionals. The goal of the site is to offer accurate, relevant data, serve as a platform for forging relationships between researchers and physicians, and promoting collaboration. The Website is not only a portal for information on Personalized Medicine, an interactive platform through which members can access Research Articles and Case Studies. Most important of all, physicians can submit a request for a Case Review and receive guidance in applying PM from Bar-Ilan University researchers at the Azrieli School of Medicine. The site also serves as a database of applied research and activities related to personalized medicine.
Personalized Medicine is the selection of a course of treatment based on an analysis of the patient’s genetic and epigenetic history, and the genetic footprint of the disease he/she is fighting. Often, patients are genetically predisposed to respond more favorably to one of several treatment options. Taking genetic data into consideration can often result in better treatment choice and a better outcome.
