PMI Outreach and Education

What is the Personalized Medicine Biobank?

The Nicklaus Children's Hospital biobank and tissue repository is an essential resource for personalized medicine research efforts, enabling the study of both health and disease over time. The Biobank collects samples and health information from volunteers, regardless of health history. Once a participant becomes part of the Biobank, he or she contributes to ongoing health research. We partner with Sanford Health, a national leader on specimen storage, management and integration with participant health information.

What is the Personalized Medicine Initiative (PMI)?

The Personalized Medicine Initiative (PMI) involves a comprehensive approach to tailoring medical management to each specific child’s individual characteristics, needs and preferences at all stages of care, including prevention, diagnosis, treatment and follow up.
