Genetic variation is one of the reasons people differ in their response to medicines. Understanding that variation can inform more refined choices of drugs and doses – ultimately preventing undesired side effects. Join us as we discuss past, present and future of pharmacogenomics with Uppsala Monitoring Centre’s Qun-Ying Yue.

Tune in to find out:

  • How genetic biomarkers can guide medicine use and dosing recommendations
  • What we need to effectively implement genetic-based prescribing in clinical practice
  • How increasing diversity in clinical trials can aid pharmacogenomics research
