Phenomics Translation Initiative (PTI) is a strategic initiative of the ANU funded by the Australian government, which aims to advance critical understanding of disease mechanism and validate approaches to new therapies. Phenomics research helps us understand how our environment makes us more or less susceptible to a wide range of diseases, including how individuals react to therapies. The research will enable precision medicine and therapies to be tailored to the patient. It is initially focused on the following chronic diseases: lupus, type 1 diabetes and age-related macular degeneration.
