I had the pleasure of hearing Dr. Hood give a compelling presentation at the University of Montana. His enthusiasm and expertise in this area is inspirational and I truly believe that the change we will see in healthcare over the next 10 years will rival the changes we will see in energy and autonomous transportation.

The future is truly exciting thanks to innovators like Dr. Hood.

Dr. Hood's outstanding contributions have had a resounding effect on the advancement of science since the 1960s. Throughout his career, he has adhered to the advice of his mentor, Dr. William J. Dreyer: "If you want to practice biology, do it on the leading edge, and if you want to be on the leading edge, invent new tools for deciphering biological information."

P4 Medicine is Predictive, Preventive, Personalized and Participatory. Its two major objectives are to quantify wellness and demystify disease.

P4 medicine is the clinical face of systems medicine.

P4 medicine will make blood a diagnostic window for viewing health and disease for the individual.

P4 medicine will provide new approaches to drug target discovery.

P4 medicine will drive profound economic, policy and social changes.

Systems biology will revolutionize the practice of healthcare in the coming decades. Today, medicine is largely reactive. It waits until a person is sick and then treats a disease, with varying levels of success. The revolution will emerge from the convergence of systems biology and the digital revolution's ability to create consumer devices, generate and analyze "big data" sets and deploy this information through business and social networks.


This is the company that Dr. Hood founded to help individuals better manage their health.
