Precision medicine can mean a lot of things, but really what it comes down to is more exact care. In other words, understanding what therapies are going to work for what patient.

It's not the approach that we've had in the past, where every patient gets the same therapy and it works in a some but not others. It's trying to figure out which therapies are going to be best for the individual patient.
