How can we improve outcomes for men diagnosed with prostate cancer?

Although prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men in the U.S., many men have indolent tumors that are unlikely to cause death in a man’s lifetime. Determining which prostate tumors are likely to lead to death is of critical clinical importance to prevent unnecessary treatment and unwanted side-effects. Understanding factors related to disease etiology and progression and developing risk models is essential... more »

Could the Precision Medicine Initiative Help Identify People with Cardiovascular Disease

We will use non-invasive wearable monitoring sensors, similar to a band-aid on the wrist, that measure arterial wave forms at the radial artery in the wrist, providing information on the elasticity and function of cardiovascular system. The information will be uploaded to smartphones and correlated with age and known cardiovascular risk factors, allowing to develop computational models to rapidly identify people at risk... more »

Need for comprehensive surveillance and a uniform definition of Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD) in All of Us

The majority of these deaths do not occur in those at high risk for SCD, but rather in the general population where most are not known to have heart disease at the time of the event. A critical obstacle for study of risk stratification and prevention of SCD is the need for a very large cohort with comprehensive surveillance and a uniform definition of SCD... more »
