Precision Public Health
The CRCSI Health Program aims to demonstrate the value of spatial technology to end users in health and thereby drive its greater uptake in the sector. Yet spatial is only one of a number of technologies that are developing rapidly which could swiftly influence the direction of health systems.
A new concept ‘Precision Public Health’ aims to link advances in spatial technology with parallel advances in bioinformatics, data linkage and genomics for the potential benefit of public health.
A special Research Topic has been created under the auspices of Frontiers in Public Health Policy – an international open access journal. If you are an interested CRCSI participant, there is a call for manuscripts in this new area to be submitted by 30 September 2016.
