Pharmacogenomics: From Precision Medicine to Precision Public Health

October 7, 2021, 11:00 am -12:00 pm EDT

Please join this free Zoom seminar

Advances in pharmacogenomics continue to occur at a rapid pace and promise a new era of personalized interventions for disease treatment and prevention.  In this seminar, we explore the evolution of the field from basic science discoveries to clinical and population health applications. Our speakers come from the University of Florida Precision Health Program where a number of research initiatives continue to provide an emerging evidentiary foundation for using pharmacogenomics to improve population health.
