Human Health

A healthy, optimal life that enables individuals to achieve their personal potential while staving off disease is the goal for us all. Genetics, combined with different environmental interactions, makes every individual unique and the current one-size-fits-all medical solutions, inadequate. JCVI research is advancing the understanding of human health and disease to enhance lives beyond managing health risks.
