The Institute for Precision Health (IPH) aims to facilitate current and future large-scale initiatives in genetic and genomic medicine, create new opportunities for innovative discovery and further solidify UCLA’s international leadership in a broad range of scholarship and training, information technology and clinical care. Central to this facilitation is the fostering of new collaborations, especially interdisciplinary collaborations across the DGSOM, UCLA Health, and UCLA. IPH brings together faculty with a wide range of expertise, not only from the clinical disciplines, but also from the disciplines of information science, engineering, software and hardware development, human genetics, genomics, public health, social work, and the social sciences.

The Institute provides leadership and strategic vision, facilitating the development of platforms for big data integration, clinical diagnostics, and patient biobanking. Such platform-building is necessary for future-changing initiatives, many of which are still in the earliest stages of development. Looking outward, IPH organizes intercampus, regional and state precision health activities, as well as community engagement to ensure that diverse community voices and concerns are understood and addressed in a transparent manner.
