Experts in the medical field are hopeful that we are getting ever closer to the day when treatment for whatever ails you will be personalized.  Personalized medicine is a relatively new field of research, some of which is taking place in Charlotte.  If perfected, it would replace the one-size-fits-all approach and, based on a simple blood or urine test, provide treatment targeted just to you.  We talk about this pioneering approach with those on the cutting edge of research.
