GHHE 000/5420 - Pharmacogenomics and Personalized Medicine (3 cr.)



Description
This course will provide a wide array of topics in the field pharmacogenomics and explore the growing importance of pharmacogenomics in the delivery and diagnosis pertinent to personalized medicine and therapeutic management. Students will be introduced to genomic concepts in genetic testing, future drug design, study interpretation, and clinical therapeutic decision making. The course will be divided into two sections. The first part of the course will examine the application of pharmacogenomics in medicine and drug design. In the second part of the course, the student will have the opportunity to apply pharmacogenomic concepts and decision making. This will be implemented via a patient case study developed by the student, or a written paper illustrating the influence of pharmacogenomics in medicine.
