The Congressional Personalized Medicine Caucus

Origins and Purpose

In February of 2020, the Personalized Medicine Coalition's educational and advocacy efforts inspired a bipartisan, bicameral group of lawmakers to launch a Congressional Personalized Medicine Caucus. The members of the caucus are committed to ensuring that health care policies in the United States encourage decision-makers in the public and private sectors to collaborate with patients in pursuit of prevention and treatment plans that are tailored more closely to patients' biological characteristics, circumstances and values.

In addition to being mindful of the ways in which various policies may influence the pace of progress toward personalized medicine as they shape health care laws, the members of the caucus partner with the Coalition and its allies to host briefings that educate other lawmakers and their teams about the importance of advancing personalized medicine for the benefit of patients and health systems.

Co-chaired by Sens. Tim Scott (R-SC) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) and Reps. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) and Tom Emmer (R-MN), the caucus continues to grow as policymakers learn more about the significance of new developments in personalized medicine.
