About PHIND at Stanford

The PHIND Center is the first center in the world to focus on precision health and integrated diagnostics. We bring together faculty from all across campus to initiate new collaborations and strengthen existing ones. Additionally, we attract the top scientists and physician-scientists in the world who are focused on building the future of precision health. Our faculty work in areas such as disease risk analytics, biomarkers of health, early molecular changes of cells/tissues transitioning from normal to disease, health economics of diagnostics, and development of new noninvasive ways to detect small molecular changes anywhere within the body using remote sensing. Finally, a key goal is to not only develop and test the strategies in our own community and hospitals, but to launch a new generation of companies that will help to bring the discoveries and inventions at Stanford out for use all over the world to help society at large.
