MedStar Genetic Medicine: Pharmacogenomics 2019

So what did you do this Saturday morning?  

Well, I decided to spend the morning learning about an exciting new area of medicine - the use of genomic information to customize an individuals medical therapy so it is more effective and far safer (personalized medicine). 

This conference was specifically on the use of the genomic information to guide drug (pharmacological) therapy which is called pharmacogenomics. MedStar leaders in this field, along with national experts, presented data from our recent pilot study. It’s exciting to see this new field emerge and how research findings are used to support this new initiative.
