Thank you for posting this great information, however, I wish the full article was available.  It says you need a subscription to read the full article unless I'm mistaken.

Linda & anyone else- I can email it to you. I did not want to put too much onto the message board. Just let me know. Or if you want me to post the whole text, I can.

Re: Recovery Act Funding Helping to Inform Personalized Medicine

Thank you so much.  I would appreciate the e-mail of the article.  It's always nice to read up on what is going on out there.  And I understand not adding all that on the site.
