Personalized medicine holds great promise to tailor health care to individual needs, while taking account of genes, lifestyle and the environment. To reach that goal researchers need to collect information on genes and health of many people to better understand disease mechanisms. In the ExACT project funded by the European Commission a survey has been prepared to ask citizens about their views on the development of personalized medicine. What do citizens know about this innovation in health care, what are their views on data sharing and what are their concerns with the various options to collect and share their data? The survey will become available in various EU countries, for which collaboration is sought with organizations from the Active citizenship Network
