Personalized medicine seeks to use genetic variation to develop new diagnostic tests and treatments and to identify the sub-groups of patients for whom they will work best. This approach can also help determine which groups of patients are more prone to developing some diseases and, ideally, help with the selection of lifestyle changes and/or treatments that can delay onset of disease or reduce its impact. This year, to celebrate our tenth anniversary conference on personalized medicine, we take a longer view, looking at how our lives have changed since the advent of personalized, precision and genomic medicine, and just how far we have yet to go. We revisit the topics we focused upon in previous years, including bioinformatics, oncology, epigenetics, the genomics of rare disease, nth generation sequencing technologies, the microbiome, and the unprecedented developments in gene therapy and genome editing. We examine the hard science, the clinical applications, the business potential, and the regulatory and ethical implications of personalized medicine in 2017. Where next for our society and our species?
