Congratulations to Ann Wu, MD MPH (Principal Investigator), Chris Lu, MSc PhD, and Natasha Stout, PhD, on receiving an R01 funded by the National Institute of Child, Health, and Human Development. In the grant, the Precision Medicine Treatment (PreEMT) Model, Dr. Wu and HPHC co-investigators, will develop a computer model capable of simulating short- and long-term clinical benefits and estimating the cost-effectiveness of integrating different genome screening strategies into clinical care for healthy or high-risk newborns for a wide variety of heritable conditions. With this model, they will synthesize the best available clinical, epidemiologic, and economic data on genetic variants present at birth for a wide variety of genetically-driven childhood conditions to project health outcomes, and provide a dynamic tool to evaluate evolving knowledge in the area of genomics and precision medicine in the United States over the next decade.
