Harnessing artificial intelligence to predict genetic risk for common and rare diseases
Different people develop disease and respond to treatments differently. Moving away from the one-size-fits-all approach, personalised medicine pursues treatment options tailored to the genetic profile of individuals. The EU-funded INTERVENE project will develop next-generation tools for disease prevention, diagnosis and personalised treatment. INTERVENE will use powerful artificial intelligence technologies on a vast and diverse US-European pool of genomic and health data to calculate genetic risk scores that predict an individual’s susceptibility to a particular disease. The risk scores will be tested in clinical trials focusing on devastating common diseases, such as diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular disease. INTERVENE will also develop and test the role of risk scores in several rare diseases as well as COVID-19 infection and severity.
