The P4 Medicine Institute aims to bring Predictive, Preventive, Personalized and Participatory medicine to patients and society.
P4Mi develops and promotes the practice of P4 Medicine as a new medical specialty augmenting both primary care and specialist disease care. Unlike other medical specialists focused on reacting to specific instances of disease and injury, P4 Medicine specialists investigate all aspects of each patient’s health from a global systemic perspective. They attack disease before symptoms occur, using cutting-edge systems analyses of dense, dynamic clouds of digital data assembled for each individual patient. In place of population averages, P4 diagnosis and therapy is guided by a deep knowledge of each patient’s own unique biology and life circumstances.
The evolution of p4 medicine
The Human Genome Project, along with subsequent developments in proteomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics, and microbiomics, created an explosion in biological information.
Co-founded by Leroy Hood, ISB leveraged the explosion in biological data and advances in computational analytics to pioneer a quantified, systems approach to biology and medicine.
Founded by Leroy Hood, P4Mi brings the benefits of quantified wellness and systems medicine (predictive, preventive, personalized and participatory) to society.
A year-long study of 108 individuals demonstrated that combining personal dense dynamic data clouds with tailored behavioral coaching can optimize wellness for individuals, identify early transitions into disease states and facilitate the reversal of some diseases.
Co-founded by Leroy Hood, Arivale provided multi-omics testing and non-medical lifestyle coaching from 2015 to April 2019. Its pioneering work laid the foundation for physician-directed scientific wellness programs based on richer personal data clouds.
Building on a tradition of research, innovation and leadership in biomedicine, the P4Mi Clinic quantifies wellness and provides 21st century medical care that is predictive, preventive, personalized, and participatory.
