The Ohio State University has a white paper on personalized medicine that discusses the university's model for employing personalized medicine at its medical center. OSU will be taking a four-stage approach -- from discovery, particularly using a systems-based approach, to developing preclinical trials and experimental therapeutics to then implementing those new strategies, and finally to disease prevention strategies. The paper adds that to make personalized medicine a reality, support is needed from the federal and state levels. "We urge our legislative leaders and public officials to support the development of personalized health care as a long-term strategy in transforming health care in the United States," the paper says.
