ACOLA’s Horizon Scanning reports are commissioned by the Commonwealth Science Council and Australia’s Chief Scientist to present timely interdisciplinary analyses that can guide decision-making through the decade ahead. This report is the second completed in ACOLA's Horizon Scanning Series.

The Future of Precision Medicine in Australia examines the current trends, technologies and applications in precision medicine as well as the role that broader implementation may play in the Australian context. The report explores important ethical, regulatory, social and cultural dimensions of precision medicine, as well as various aspects of big data, health economics, workforce training, public engagement and the inclusion of Indigenous peoples.
