Colin Ross, Assistant Professor, Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, UBC (colin.ross@ubc.ca)

Content:

 This highly interactive course is intended to involve participants in:

  • A dynamic didactic experience of the foundational principles of pharmacogenomics.
  • An appreciation for the different methods used in pharmacogenomics research.
  • Examination of real-world examples of pharmacogenomics.
  • Application of methodology to designing pharmacogenomics studies.
  • Interpretation of the data found in the pharmacogenomics literature, and understanding wider implications of the results for implementation into clinical care.

Educational objectives:

  • To understand the genetic and pharmacogenomic terminology and how cellular and molecular biology informs pharmacogenomic studies at the level of analysis.
  • To better understand the study design and methodologic approaches, their strengths and weakness used in pharmacogenomics.
  • To understand the latest statistical approaches used in pharmacogenomics studies.
  • To understand the role that pharmacogenomics can play in pharmacovigilance.
  • To understand how pharmacogenomics relates to the current focus of Personalized Medicine
  • To have an overview of clinical utility of pharmacogenomics and associated regulatory issues as well as policy-relevant research, including policy relevant to Big Data
