The Patient-Centred, Accessible and Efficient Applications of Precision Medicine (PACER) Lab is an innovative program of research focused on the sustainability, value and social impacts of precision medicine. PACER’s research initiatives identify community-defined risks and benefits of precision medicine, its cost-effectiveness, and what policy changes can support the responsible and equitable application of multi-omics. Our research studies estimate preference-based utility and acceptability of multi-omic technologies, as well as include value for money assessments.
