Pharmacogenomics and Personalized Medicine

This program is designed to help you fill in knowledge gaps and to begin applying pharmacogenomics in your practice. Pharmacogenomics is the study of the role of the genome in drug response. Pharmacogenomics analyzes how the genetic makeup of an individual affects their response to drugs and aims to develop rational means to optimize drug therapy, with respect to the patients' genotype, to ensure maximum efficacy with minimal adverse effects.

Human Genetic Variability: P450 Enzymes & Transporters
