Precision Medicine Research Subject to Bias in Datasets and Outcomes

Kadija Ferryman, Mikaela Pitcan

Coverage of the Data & Society report, Fairness in Precision Medicine by Postdoctoral Scholar Kadija Ferryman and Researcher Mikaela Pitcan.

“According to Ferryman and Pitcan, although precision medicine has the potential to transform healthcare for the better, there remains work ahead to ensure that structural determinants of health are acknowledged and addressed and to institute policies that will keep data from being used to marginalize vulnerable people.”
