Individuals differ – also in the way they become ill and recover. As well as genetic predispositions, several other factors play a role – for example, environmental influences, lifestyle, age, sex and concomitant diseases. In precision medicine, all this information is taken into account, as well as the patient’s clinical data.
This makes it possible to obtain a much more precise diagnosis and to tailor treatment to the individual patient.
“The LOOP Zurich – Medical Research Center” connects the fundamental biomedical research and bioinformatics of the two universities, ETH Zurich and the University of Zurich, with the clinical research of four University Hospitals.
