Multilevel Research and the Challenges of Implementing Genomic Medicine by Muin Khoury, MD, PhD

Advances in genomics and related fields promise a new era of personalized medicine in the cancer care continuum. Nevertheless, there are fundamental challenges in integrating genomics into current cancer practice. This paper explores how multilevel research can contribute to evaluation, implementation and dissemination of genomic medicine. The paper synthesizes existing information in a framework of multilevel intervention methodology and makes recommendations for future research on the integration of genomic medicine into the cancer care continuum.
