Precision medicine is an evolving predictive, early preventive, and treatment method that takes into account human gene heterogeneity for each individual. Personalized Medicine Research Center (PMRC) of Endocrinology and Metabolism Research Institute (EMRI) has been officially founded by the authority of the Ministry of Health and Medical Education on 18 December 2016 with the primary purpose of research, education, and dissemination of the personalized medicine approach throughout the country. In this review, we aimed to introduce the Personalized Medicine Research Center activities in the field of precision medicine since the establishment.
We systematically reviewed PubMed, Scopus, and WoS from 2016 to December 2019 to identify our relevant topics with PMRC affiliation.
After screening processes, a total of 18 studies met eligibility criteria to include in the systematic review.
Personalized medicine that interchangeably called precision medicine is a new concept in medicine, the implementation of which needs to organize some infrastructures which are physical and the required education for healthcare professionals in different countries.
