Pharmacogenomics (PGx) is the science of how an individual’s genetic background affects response to medications—and the field has left the research realm to emerge as an important tool for clinical care. Many academic and large private health systems have implemented PGx, and now smaller non-academic centers are beginning or considering implementation into routine practice. Consumer interest in PGx testing is likewise growing, fueled by availability of direct-to-consumer tests.

Having a clear understanding of the current scientific evidence, emerging evidence, and knowledge of successful implementation pathways and examples are critical for your success in clinical pharmacogenomics.
