Genomic Medicine X: Pharmacogenomics 

Pharmacogenomics On May 2-3, 2017, the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) will sponsor its 10th Genomic Medicine meeting - Genomic Medicine X: Pharmacogenomics  - at the Sheraton Silver Spring Hotel in Silver Spring, Maryland.

The objectives of the meeting are to:

  • Survey national landscape of research programs in pharmacogenomics implementation
  • Review current advances and clinical applications of pharmacogenomics
  • Discuss limitations and obstacles in pharmacogenomics clinical implementation
  • Identify evidence gaps and studies that are needed to address them
  • Design strategies for large-scale evaluation and implementation of pharmacogenomics in clinical care in the U.S. 

Live webcast on GenomeTV Live starts on May 2 at 8:30 a.m. Eastern
