Learn how advances in biomedicine hold the potential to revolutionize drug development, drug treatments, and disease prevention: where are we now, and what does the future hold? This course will present short primers in genetics and mechanisms underlying variability in drug responses. A series of case studies will be used to illustrate principles of how genetics are being brought to bear on refining diagnoses and on personalizing treatment in rare and common diseases. The ethical and operational issues around how to implement large scale genomic sequencing in clinical practice will be addressed.

TOP REVIEWS FROM CASE STUDIES IN PERSONALIZED MEDICINE
This course really helped me understand the precision medicine in terms of genetic variants and its effects on drug metabolism and treatment. Thanks to Prof. Roden
This course offered an extensive and concise review of pharmacogenomics as a tool to provide personalized medicine to my patients.
It was a great course and so much information. I would surely like to get more knowledge and insight of the topic discussed.
This is the most helpful class I have ever seen in Coursera. Thank you, Dr. Roden, for providing so many cases in this course.
