The concepts of personalized medicine have been around for decades, but in the 10 years following the full sequencing of the human genome there has been an explosion of research into methods and tools to further personalize patient care. Some of these, particularly in the field of oncology, have been readily adopted into clinical practice; but most have yet to be integrated into mainstream clinical care. This issue of the Journal of Personalized Medicine will highlight research that is leading the way in bringing Personalized Medicine tools, including risk stratification, family health history, genetics, or genomics, into the clinic. These studies should present data related to important concepts such as adoption barriers and solutions, education, and/or implementation to promote dissemination and broad uptake of these tools.
