Implementing Pharmacogenomics in Modern Health Care

A scientific meeting of the Human Genome Variation Society

(satellite meeting to the European Society of Human Genetics' Annual Meeting)

The promises of precision medicine have been made for some years now. Unfortunately, the number of adverse reactions to drug treatments is increasing and a significant number of individuals to do not derive any benefit for the top 10 grossing drugs prescribed. Advances in the field of genetics have allowed us to better understand the impact of variation on drug response and to create more precise drug-response predictions. However, advances in genetic technologies have surpassed our ability to interpret the vast amounts of knowledge being generated and clinical implementation of these discoveries lags behind. How known and novel genetic variants impact drug efficacy includes their identification, interpretation and utilization to improve outcomes for individuals taking these drugs. This scientific meeting of the Human Genome Variation Society will provide an opportunity for individuals to hear the latest research on all of these topics.

Abstracts - Close 7th April 2017

CLOSING DATE - 7th APRIL 2017

We invite abstracts to be submitted to the meeting within the theme of Pharmacogenomics for consideration as both oral and poster presentations. We also welcome other abstracts with general "variation" themes. Abstracts within the theme will be given priority for oral presentations. Please follow instructions on the Abstract page.
