    Dr. Kristin Newby, principal investigator of the MURDOCK Study, noted some significant similarities between the MURDOCK Study and a major research initiative recently announced by President Obama. As part of the Precision Medicine Initiative, announced on January 30, the Administration has allocated $130 million to the National Institutes of Health to develop a voluntary national research cohort of a million volunteers. Writing about this NIH research cohort, Dr. Newby drew parallels with the MURDOCK Study saying, “I know this approach can work because I’ve been part of a research team that has been doing something similar on a smaller but still impressive scale…[Our] analyses are beginning to help us understand both health and disease with much greater precision.”
