Precision medicine-an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person-raises a myriad of cultural, political, and historical questions that the humanities and social sciences are uniquely positioned to address. The Precision Medicine: Ethics, Politics, and Culture lecture series represents a broad-based exploration of questions that precision medicine raises in law, ethics, the social sciences, economics, and the humanities.
