Pharmacogenomics Research Spans School Agenda
Pharmacogenomics research at the UCSF School of Pharmacy extends from a better understanding of information derived from the Human Genome Project to research on specific genetic differences in humans and how they might affect an individual's response to a medication. It covers clinical research that evaluates the real-life differences in patient response. Now, with the creation of the UCSF Center for Translational and Policy Research in Personalized Medicine in the School's department of clinical pharmacy, faculty School members and their collaborators nationwide are exploring the best ways to translate genomics testing and technologies into clinical practice and health policy.
About the School: The UCSF School of Pharmacy is a premier graduate-level academic organization dedicated to improving health through precise therapeutics. It succeeds through innovative research, by educating PharmD health professional and PhD science students, and by caring for the therapeutics needs of patients while exploring innovative new models of patient care. The School was founded in 1872 as the first pharmacy school in the American West. It is an integral part of UC San Francisco, a leading university dedicated to promoting health worldwide.
