The Swiss Personalized Health Network (SPHN) is a national initiative designed to promote the development of personalized medicine and personalized health in Switzerland.
The ultimate goal is to promote health and well-being, to prevent, diagnose and treat unfavourable health conditions more precisely, thus reducing the risk of developing such conditions and permitting more effective treatments of disease states with fewer adverse effects.
SPHN will lay the foundations that are needed to facilitate research projects in this area such as a system for a nationwide exchange of health-related data.

Two years after its launch, SPHN was selected by the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH) to join an international group of leading initiatives. This group works collaboratively to create frameworks and standards to enable responsible research in the field of genomics and personalized health.
PHRT invites clinical scientists who have access to an extensive sample cohort, to create an inter-institutional, interdisciplinary consortium to formulate a well-defined clinical question to request funding to generate matched genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic data by the two PHRT platforms. Data integration, data analysis and data interpretation is an important part of the project as well.
