What We Believe

We at the Foundation for Precision Medicine are honored to partner with the National Science Foundation to help define the future of hyper-personalized healthcare. By leveraging machine learning and artificial intelligence coupled with our extensive data sets the Foundation for Precision Medicine will discover and define new ways of caring for patients and their families.

Mark Ereth Medical Director

Complex disease processes like Alzheimer’s Disease cannot be cured by pharmaceutical or genetic sciences alone and current treatments and therapies lead to mixed successes. By introducing more data-driven investigation we can consider individual variability for each person and use the power of big data and artificial intelligence to treat challenging diseases.

Ayin Vala Chief Data Scientist

We have put together a team of committed, talented and successful professionals in different areas of expertise in healthcare. By bringing together experts with complementary skillsets in one place, we are creating an ecosystem where personalized therapies are developed in collaboration to help our patients.
