Precision Health Innovation Prize

Enabling the collaborative research in Precision Health that is instrumental in the transition to preventative medicine

Recognise and celebrate the new research knowledge in the precision health community from early career researchers.

Precision Health Initiative welcomes applications from current PhD students and postdocs from all Schools within Cambridge, including Arts and Humanities, Biological Sciences, Clinical Medicine, Humanities and Social Sciences, Physical Sciences, and Technology.

Precision health is beyond the current thinking of precision medicine and believes in the philosophy to encourage disease prevention and earlier intervention by proactive monitoring and detection according to individual risk. It disseminates the next generation of healthcare strategies, and currently faces a series of challenges including but not limited to technology readiness, data quality/security, individual engagement, social inequality, regulation, and investment risks.

This prize rewards innovative interdisciplinary research in any aspect of precision health.
