Personalized medicine and genetic testing

I am involved in a number of studies relevant to genetic testing including discrete choice surveys examining how demand for prenatal and pre-implantation genetic testing varies as a function of a number of factors (including cost and amount of risk information provided by the test), the cost effectiveness of providing a genetic test in conjunction with a smoking cessation program, and the cost effectiveness of using a genetic test to determine the appropriate treatment after an ACS.
