Updates in Precision Medicine: Pharmacogenomic and Pharmacovigilance Conference to be held Sept. 28-29

The University of Florida College of Pharmacy is partnering with GenomeWeb’s Precision Medicine Leaders’ Summit to host the Updates in Precision Medicine: Pharmacogenomic and Pharmacovigilance Conference, Sept. 28-29, in Orlando. The conference will focus on the latest strategies and technologies for bringing genomic medicine into the clinic. It will be offered in-person at the Signia Hotel Bonnet Creek Resort and live streamed.

Precision Medicine ConferenceMore than 30 speakers will present at the conference, with the keynote address being provided by Steve Scherer, Ph.D., a professor in the Human Genome Sequencing Center and the department of molecular and human genetics at Baylor University. Scherer has more than a decade of experience in pharmacogenomics, as well as multiple fields with translating DNA and RNA sequencing to both research and clinical applications.

Among the topics covered will be the evolving role of molecular profiling in pharmacology — from new developments in pharmacogenomics to emerging biomarker strategies for post-market surveillance. The general registration fee is $695, with discounts available for academic, nonprofit and government employees as well as residents and students. University of Florida faculty, alumni and friends can register at a reduced rate of $450 when using the promo code: UFCOP.
