Special Issue Information
As the scientific advances in genomics promise treatments that are tailored to the genetic characteristics of the individual, increasing attention is being paid to personalising interventions for health and wellbeing. There is intuitive appeal in assuming that targeting interventions to groups or individuals who are most likely to be responsive to an intervention, or specifically adapting and tailoring an intervention for an individual, would bring significant benefits in health when compared to an approach where such individual differences and characteristics are not considered. The science of personalised interventions, especially in the context of mental health and wellbeing, will also need to consider factors beyond the individual’s underlying genetic and biological mechanisms. This Special Issue of the Journal of Personalized Medicine aims to highlight the current state of research and showcase some of the latest findings in this field. It is hoped that scientific advances in the evidence-based methods for tailoring interventions to individuals will ultimately pave the way towards incorporating personalised interventions for health and wellbeing in clinical practice that is rooted in science.
