Third Genomics Talk by Silverberry Genomix:
Pharmacogenomics: Genes and Response to Drugs
Differences in genetic (inherited) makeup among us affect what the body does to a drug and what the drug does to the body. The study of genetic differences in the response to drugs is called pharmacogenomics.
Because of their genetic makeup, some people process (metabolize) drugs slowly. As a result, a drug may accumulate in the body, causing toxicity. Other people metabolize drugs so quickly that after they take a usual dose, drug levels in the blood never become high enough for the drug to be effective.
In this talk, we will go through some details of how genes affect our response to drugs and will explore it in specific cases as examples.
Happy Hour and Networking: 6:00 to 6:30. Talk / Webinar starts at 6:30
44 Tehama St, San Francisco, CA 94150, First Floor, Boardroom 1
