Can BioBanks Help Close Gaps in Health Outcomes?

By Barbara J. Toman Barbara J. Toman (@barbaratoman)

By definition, personalized medicine requires diversity. One-size-fits-all doesn’t work for every individual, especially members of groups that are medically underserved. In collaboration with Arizona State University and Mountain Park Health Center (MPHC) in Phoenix, Mayo Clinic’s Center for Individualized Medicine has created a biobank to enhance the diversity of Mayo’s medical research. Sangre Por Salud (Spanish for […]
