About 62 pages outlining  what FDA initiative and results on personalized medicine ,next generation sequencing, and their effort in the of genomics and their current opinion on diagnosis base on symptoms .

Re: FDA Initiative :Paving The Way For Personalized Medicine

Great for bringing this up, Percy.  Have not had a chance to finish my report on last week's Faster Cures Conference however; I believe that we have a chance to initiate faster drug approval for out patient community.  It has been suggested to use a template from one of the 20 diseases chosen and to collect data provided by researchers and physicians and to solicit patient input.  Although I spoke with the FDA representative briefly, I am awaiting a call back from other FDA staff for clarification.  The NCI Hepatobiliary Task Force members also have been informed by me; they also are awaiting further information.
