Pharmacogenomics and Personalised Medicine 2011
29 September-2 October 2011
Wellcome Trust Conference Centre, Wellcome Trust Genome Campus,
Hinxton, Cambridge, UK.
 
 Registration now closed


Summary
Pharmacogenomics and Personalised Medicine is becoming more prominent and will have a major impact on the way medicines are prescribed to patients and, as a consequence, how they are developed in industry. This meeting will focus on the opportunities presented by the growing contribution of genomic information and technologies to interdisciplinary approaches in the study of variable responses of humans to drugs and toxic agents, and how this research can benefit the individual. The meeting will provide in depth discussion on diverse areas including the use of next generation sequencing technologies to identify common and rare variants determining the response to drugs; the interface of pharmacogenomics and complex disease, including cancer; understanding and managing serious adverse drug reactions; personalising medicine.

We will bring together senior and junior investigators, postdoctoral and postgraduate researchers, medical, regulatory and ethical experts in a range of disciplines to share new research and experience, and to explore the potential of working together in new international and interdisciplinary research areas for the benefit of individual patients.

The conference programme and unique venue provides a superb forum for interaction among the delegates. We encourage the submission of high quality abstracts for consideration as posters and/or platform presentations.

Please note: This meeting will follow the UK Pharmacogenetics and Stratified Medicine Network 2011 meeting (28 September), please click here for further information and to register.
