Health Affairs (HA) has set an August 14 deadline for abstract submissions for a special publication with a Precision Medicine theme.
The special edition will be published May 2018, according to the HA website.
“For our purposes, we define precision medicine as an approach to treating illness that takes into account the variability of human genetics along with environment and lifestyle for better diagnoses, treatments and outcomes,” HA says.
Editors plan to publish roughly 20 peer-reviewed articles related to the theme.
“We invite all interested authors to submit abstracts for consideration for this issue,” HA says. “Editors will review the abstracts and, for those that best fit our vision and goals for the issue, invite authors to submit full papers for consideration for the issue.”
