The mission of the UNC Program for Precision Medicine in Health Care (PPMH) is to foster advancements in evidence-based precision medicine approaches to screening, prevention, diagnosis, and health management for North Carolinians in the UNC Health System and beyond. We are developing a program of clinical, research, and educational initiatives that will create a unique vision and roadmap for precision medicine within the UNC School of Medicine and the UNC Health System.
The PPMH was launched in Fall 2018 under the leadership of Director, Jonathan Berg, MD, PhD, Professor in the Department of Genetics. Associate Director, Laura Milko, PhD, Assistant Professor in the Department of Genetics, joined the PPMH leadership in early 2019. The PPMH Steering Committee is comprised of 13 members representing 20 departments across the School of Medicine, as well as representatives from the UNC Health Care System, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the School of Public Health. The PPMH leadership is engaged in outreach to various Departments and Centers on UNC’s campus, with the goal of raising awareness of the new program and engaging new members and collaborators.
