The Precision Medicine Initiative has been launched by the White House to pioneer a new model of patient-powered research. It will provide clinicians with new tools, knowledge, and therapies allowing them to select the best treatments for each individual patient. Building on this initiative, the University of Washington is establishing a one-of-a-kind molecular imaging center, the Washington Molecular Imaging and Therapy (WAMIT) Center. We expect it to lead the next major wave in medical diagnosis and treatment, and significantly strengthen the infrastructure for translating scientific discoveries into clinical applications. As part of planning activities for this center, there will be a full day symposium at the UW featuring leading researchers in the field from around both the UW and the world.
