Reminder: Science Life is now at The Forefront

In case you missed it, Science Life has a new home at The Forefront, a new science, health and wellness news and information website for the University of Chicago Medicine, the Biological Sciences Division and the Pritzker School of Medicine.

We will continue to cover the same type of basic science research and biomedical discoveries at The Forefront on a dedicated research and discoveries channel. In the coming year we will also launch a newsletter to bring you the latest updates, but in the meantime here’s what you may have missed this week:

Personalized blood sugar goals can save diabetes patients thousands

Cost analysis shows setting blood sugar targets tailored to patient needs can save more than $13,500 over a lifetime compared with uniform national recommendations.

The Personalized Therapeutics Clinic (PTC), in its inaugural year, takes a precision medicine approach to patient care with one overarching purpose: to provide consultative input from a clinical pharmacologist and a staff pharmacist regarding complex medication issues.
