The Center for Precision Medicine at Wake Forest School of Medicine was launched in December 2017 to foster collaborative interdisciplinary research into the causes of common human disorders, such as

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Cancer
  • Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Fatty liver disease
  • Lipid disorders
  • Kidney diseases
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Alcohol and drug addiction
  • Asthma and pulmonary function
  • Aging-related health complications
Our mission is to develop and support innovative, collaborative, multidisciplinary research programs to understand the transition of normal physiology to dysregulated disease processes at the molecular level. The detailed understanding of these changes will advance our ability to improve long-term health outcomes of our patients, and to develop novel innovative treatment and lifestyle modification strategies.
