Aims/Description: Pharmacogenomics and stratified health care ensure that healthcare professionals offer the 'right treatment, for the right person, at the right timeż based on the genetics of the individual. This module will provide a comprehensive overview of the analytical strategies and techniques used in pharmacogenomics and explore some of the challenges and limitations in this field. Biomarkers can be used as predictive tools for optimising drug response and preventing adverse drug reactions. This module will therefore also provide an overview of the different type of genomic biomarkers currently in use or emerging within the pharmacogenomics field.
