Governor Brown Proposes $30M for Precision Medicine, Building on CIAPM to Establish Institute

"In 2015, the Governor created the nation’s first state-level initiative on precision medicine. Precision medicine aims to improve health and healthcare through better use of advanced computing, technology and data science. Building on the $23 million state investment in precision medicine to date, the Budget proposes to establish the California Institute to Advance Precision Health and Medicine with an additional $30 million one-time General Fund appropriation to continue developing demonstration projects, incorporate successful demonstration projects into the health delivery system, and further advance how data science can be used in healthcare. The institute would be administered through a collaboration between public and private nonprofit institutions, overseen by the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research."
