Toward Precision Medicine for Neurological and Neuropsychiatric Disorders. Cell stem cell. 23(1):21-24. Pubmed: 29887317 DOI:10.1016/j.stem.2018.05.019


The genetic complexity, clinical variability, and inaccessibility of affected tissue in neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disorders have largely prevented the development of effective disease-modifying therapeutics. A precision medicine approach that integrates genomics, deep clinical phenotyping, and patient stem cell models may facilitate identification of underlying biological drivers and targeted drug development.
