The overall goal of the new IPPH is to promoting multidisciplinary collaborations across campus to designing and implementing wide array of precision health research using a population-based framework among diverse research participants from its clinics and surrounding communities. Over the next five years, the IPPH specifically aims to:
- bringing together diverse expertise across the university relevant to precision health research and training
- work with academic departments to help develop new expertise through faculty recruitment in augmenting university’s precision health research and training capacity
- help create/ population-based precision health research resource accessible by faculty at large
- work with academic units, educational committees, and interested faculty members to establishing a new graduate training program in precision health
By implementing the above goals IPPH will help position The University of Chicago at the forefront of precision health research.
