Stratified medicine, also known as personalised medicine, is at the cutting edge of a new era in healthcare : “The right treatment, for the right person, at the right time”.
Stratified Medicine aims to identify how our genes or patterns in levels and state of molecules within our bodies, or subtle differences in medical images, could be used to create robust clinical decision making tests for a range of degenerative diseases.
The undergraduate stratified medicine programme (BSc Hons) established in 2014 is the only stratified medicine course in the UK. It is based on the Magee campus with some teaching at Altnagelvin Hospital.
