The Nevada Institute of Personalized Medicine (NIPM) at UNLV is working to improve individual and community health in Nevada through research and technology commercialization, education, and workforce training.
Modern healthcare relies largely on an expensive "one-size-fits-most model for diagnosis and treatment that often fails to account for biological differences between people. Personalized medicine is different. Your unique genetic makeup — your DNA — already encodes the blueprint for effective treatment and disease prevention.
NIPM will help move Nevada from the trial-and-error medicine of today to the data-driven decision-making of tomorrow by decoding genomes to predict disease susceptibility, sift through treatment options, and fine-tune drug dosages to minimize adverse effects and help Nevadans lead longer and healthier lives.
The Nevada Institute of Personalized Medicine (NIPM) at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas is working to improve individual and systemic health care through translational clinical scientific research, education and workforce training, commercialization of technologies, and job creation.
