FPM Education Week 2021 On Demand

Friday 14 June 2024

Application of Genomics in Pharmaceutical Medicine

Four workshops | On Demand

FPM Education Week 2021 was all about genomics and genomic applications in pharmaceutical medicine. You can register below for online on demand access to the recordings and slides for each workshop.

Since the successful sequencing of the human genome in 2003, new avenues for pharmaceutical medical research and development have rapidly evolved. This has led to a greater understanding of the genetic contribution to variability in clinical pharmacology and predisposition to drug safety concerns, improved understanding of the genetic basis of disease leading to the evolution of precision therapeutics and, finally, the development and approval of the first gene therapies offering potential for cure of genetic disorders.

Our panel of speakers are all experts in their fields of pharmaceutical development. FPM Education Week 2021 aimed to enable you to better understand the challenges and benefits to be gained by applying genomics to the development of new treatments.
