What is the Initiative?

In April 2015, Gov. Edmund G. Brown Jr. announced the launch of the California Initiative to Advance Precision Medicine (CIAPM).

Hosted by UC San Francisco, this $3 million partnership between the state, the University of California, and other public and private entities will help build the infrastructure and assemble the resources necessary to advance precision medicine-oriented data, tools and applications.

The initiative will support two initial patient-focused demonstration projects, and begin a comprehensive inventory of California’s assets, that can be used by the state’s scientists, clinicians and entrepreneurs, enabling them to turn available large data sets and technical innovation into better health outcomes.
