PHAR 339 - Essentials of Pharmacogenomics

(2cr) The rapidly emerging discipline of pharmacogenomics addresses the heritable variability in the way a person, based on their genetic makeup, responds to drugs. This course will introduce student pharmacists to topics in genetics, cell biology, molecular biology, and biochemistry as relevant to the field of pharmacogenomics. Additionally, student pharmacists will be introduced to some common laboratory techniques currently in use in pharmacogenomics research labs and quickly evolving topics such as economics, informatics, and policy. The course will serve as the foundation for future discussions in pharmacogenomics in the more advanced pharmacy curriculum and prepare pharmacists as key players in the future of personalized medicine. This course is limited to first-year pharmacy students. Prerequisites: PHAR 321 .
