The Flagship Council supports:
The University of Missouri System’s request for the Next Gen Precision Medicine project. The complex, a planned facility that will open in 2021, will increase high-level laboratory facilities for interdisciplinary collaboration that foster leading-edge discoveries in precision medicine. This emerging field — which approaches disease treatment and prevention through individual variability in genes, environment and lifestyle — promises medical outcomes barely imaginable today. The facility will draw talent and funding to further create industry partnerships while giving students and researchers unparalleled educational opportunities.
As one of just 34 public members of the elite American Association of Universities (AAU), Mizzou plays a critical role in strengthening and enhancing the state’s competitiveness.
