2019 Pre-Conference COURSE

Tuesday, June 11, 2019

12:30 to 20:00

University of Calgary Foothills Health Sciences Centre

TRW2E23

Directions to the Foothills Health Sciences Centre

  • CSPT 2019 is taking place in the University of Calgary Foothills Health Sciences Centre (not the Foothills Hospital) — home to Cumming School of Medicine and the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine.

    The registration desk, posters, and break/lunch area is in the HRIC Atrium on the ground floor.

    The pharmacogenomics pre-conference course takes place in TRW2E23.

    The main meeting presentation rooms are Theatre 3 and Theatre 4.

    From Hotel Alma (walking)

  • Go out the main door of Hotel Alma and walk straight south as shown on the map. 
  • Cross 24thAvenue and then proceed until you reach a T-junction. 
  • Cross the road and turn right – you will quickly come to a pathway (you will see signs for a bike route) that crosses an alley and takes you out to the next street. Take this pathway. (You will see cranes on the skyline – this is where you are going).
  •  You will come out on Uxbridge Drive (another T-junction). Stay on the same side of the road and turn left. Follow it around, past the round-about to a set of lights by the gas station.
  •  Staying on the same side of the street, cross over 16thAvenue at the lights and proceed straight ahead (south) until the next set of lights (another T-junction). Go the south side of the intersection and cross over (there will be a parkade on your left and construction on your right across the road).
  • Walk straight ahead until you come to a large building – you will see an overhead ‘Plus 15’ from a parking garage on the right crossing over to the Health Sciences Centre. Walk ahead and enter the Foothills Health Science through the door under the Plus 15. You are in the Health Sciences Centre. Follow the signs to the registration desk or refer to the directions below on the next page.

  • Directions to Registration Desk

    The registration desk is located on the north side of the HRIC Atrium. You can follow the signs or these directions:

  • On entering the Health Sciences Centre from the north under the Plus 15 walkway, go up the steps and walk straight ahead until you reach an atrium to your right.
  • Turn right and go right down the atrium until you reach a set of glass doors.
  • Go through the doors and up the small ramp on the right hand side.
  • You are now in the HRIC Atrium. The registration desk should be just to your left, with the poster boards and tables set up behind the registration desk.

  • Directions to Presentation Rooms

    Pharmacogenomics Pre-conference Course

  • Walk to the south end of the HRIC Atrium (end away from the Registration Desk). You will see a set of stairs and a hallway to your right. 
  • You can follow the hallway through two sets of doors (past the first elevators) until you are in the TRW Building. There will be a set of elevators in the lobby. Take it up to the second floor. 
    • When you exit, you will see the main office of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine. Walk to the office and turn right, go through a door, and then the first door on your right leads to TRW2E23 (there are lockers in front of the room).
    •  Alternatively, go up the stairs in the HRIC atrium two flights until you reach the next level.
  • Turn right and walk through the next building (HRIC), across a walkway, and up a small set of stairs on the right hand side, then through two sets of doors until you see the main office of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine. Walk to the office and turn right, go through a door, and then the first door on your right leads to TRW2E23 (there are lockers in front of the room).

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
