California is a leader in innovation and Governor Brown has made Precision Medicine a priority in the State.
"We’re expanding health care coverage to millions more. And, California is the nation’s leader in developing medical and scientific advances that will cure diseases and lower costs. We have six of America’s twelve top-performing metropolitan areas in biotechnology: San Diego, San Jose, San Francisco, Oakland, Los Angeles and Orange County. Last year, we created a tax credit to help innovators, in these regions and beyond, hire and expand in California. Four out of the world’s twenty leading academic bioscience institutions are located here in California: UCSF and Berkeley, UCLA, Stanford and UC San Diego. Just as California has led the way with stem cell research, so too can we pioneer the new field of precision medicine which uses genomics, medical devices, computer sciences and other fields to treat individual patients, instead of broad populations." - State of the State 2014
In April 2015, Governor Brown launched the California Initiative to Advance Precision Medicine (CIAPM). CIAPM will be hosting meetings, discussions, and anticipates hosting competitive round of funding for additional demonstration projects that will be selected through a competitive, peer-reviewed request for proposals.
