"Personalized Medicine is the targeted care of patients that takes into consideration each person’s unique attributes, including genetic makeup and environment. In my job, Personalized Medicine is about managing the vast amounts of data that help drive our understanding of the genetic and environmental factors that can help define how a person will respond to treatment." - Natalie Boutin
