With greater emphasis placed on the translation of scientific discoveries to clinical rehabilitation, the assimilation of new technologies to bolster this effort is rapidly becoming essential. The successful translation must overcome the challenges of patient heterogeneity and varying responsiveness to treatment. Indeed, scientific advances in understanding genetic, molecular, and cellular targets are inspiring novel therapies toward more precise technologies that use biomarkers and functional phenotyping to personalize diagnostics and interventions. With the optimization of function as the ultimate goal in rehabilitation, successful translation of existing and innovative techniques will rely on the synergistic goals embedded within precision medicine and rehabilitation. To this end, precision rehabilitation is emerging as a theme aimed to promote this convergence and will undoubtedly result in significant clinical breakthroughs over the next several decades. In this session, we will discuss the need for research that incorporates precision rehabilitation in the management of persons with neurologic pathologies.
