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.
- 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
