The Role of Pathologist in Precision Medicine

Abstract

Pathologists will play a key role in precision medicine for the follow reasons. Pathologists have direct access to patient specimens, the most cutting-age diagnostic technologies, and integrated laboratory data to design therapeutic plans. Pathologists also have the upper hand in carrying out translational research utilizing patient specimens. Owing to these advantages, the pathologists will play an important part in future therapeutic target-based and individualized clinical trials, and their role will shift from that of a traditional diagnostician to that of a therapeutic consultant.
