Over the last decade, huge advances in technology have made genomic sequencing cheaper and more accessible, facilitating the tracking of bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens.
Inside Precision Medicine sits down with Kaitlyn Johnson, PhD, senior data analyst at The Rockefeller Foundation’s Pandemic Prevention Institute (PPI), where her work leverages data analysis and modeling to provide real-time guidance to individuals and decision-makers to prevent and mitigate pandemics. We asked Johnson about her work, the PPI, COVID-19, and future pandemics.
The next phase of phage research is here, but many challenges remain before it enters the clinic.
Data Medicine
Researchers are hungry to get their hands on as much data as they can to help drive new discoveries and expose the vulnerabilities of chronic diseases. But to what extent is the research community working to secure these data while also protecting the privacy of the everyday people who have consented for their information to be used in research?

Digging deeper into biology could produce targeted drugs and diagnostics to treat a collection of life-long conditions.
Electronic Health Records illustration
Electronic health records (EHRs) – systems that control all hospital data – have been around since the early 1970s. One of the first, the Health Evaluation thru Logical Processing (HELP) system, was developed by medical informatics pioneer Homer Warner at LDS Hospital, now Intermountain Healthcare, in Salt Lake City, Utah. Warner’s system used medical logic to evaluate patient data and...
