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 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 supports patient-focused demonstration projects and is assembling an inventory of California’s precision medicine assets, enabling the state’s scientists, clinicians and entrepreneurs to turn available large data sets and technical innovation into better health outcomes and informing strategic areas for the future development of precision medicine-related projects.
