Innovative Education for the Health Care Revolution
The Master of Science in Pharmacogenomics and Personalized Medicine (M.S. in PGPM) degree provides the opportunity for students to explore the relationship between an individual’s genetic make-up, their health, and their response to medications. Pharmacogenomics focuses on the use of genomic information to develop the most effective use of medications, including minimizing adverse events. Personalized medicine is a method of disease prevention and treatment for which the healthcare team considers individual variations in genes, environment and lifestyle.
The human genome is the key to the personalized health care of the future. This degree prepares students for career opportunities in biologic technology, at genetic testing laboratories, within the pharmaceutical industry, or to augment areas of clinical practice.
