59th Medical Wing Lackland AFB United States
Pagination or Media Count:
The Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences and United States Air Force USAFPersonalized Medicine and Advanced Diagnostics Program partnership seeks evidence to enhance support for the utilization of genetics, genomics, pharmacogenomics, proteomics, and bioinformatics G2P tools to optimize prevention, diagnosis, early intervention and treatment strategies at the San Antonio Military Health System SAMHS. Panel members will describe studies in the areas of Behavioral and Psychological Health and Chronic Disease Management providing evidence for the integration of personalized data into clinical decision-making, especially during the prevention and treatment of common yet complex disorders. Research in development of pharmacogenomics-driven predictive risk profiles will tailor the management of military patients with chronic diseases, such as Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus and Cardiovascular Disease. Furthermore, on-going research will advance our understanding the effects of gene-environment interactions for tailored treatments based on individual, social, operational and environmental risk and protective factors, such as those associated with social-occupational impairment, sleep deprivation, and resiliency. Studies in Behavioral and Psychological Health are designed with a long-term goal of providing actionable recommendations regarding strategies for promoting and maintaining the health and readiness of MHS personnel across the deployment cycle.
