Pharmacogenomics Community

The Pharmacogenomics Community combines the disciplines of biochemistry, biophysics, genetics, molecular biology, bioinformatics, and pharmacology to elucidate the mechanisms of drug action, toxicity, metabolism and transport and to identify genetic determinants of variability in drug exposure, response and toxicity.

Community Goals:
  • Facilitate interaction and collaboration between members of the Pharmacogenomics Community via social media and networking opportunities
  • Spur interest and growth in the area of pharmacogenomics
  • Act as the primary home for researchers in the area of pharmacogenomics
  • Support member engagement in the Precision Medicine Initiative

Jason H. Karnes, PharmD, PhD, BCPS
University of Arizona

Dr. Karnes' primary area of research interest is cardiovascular pharmacogenomics, specifically investigating the utility of genetic polymorphisms to predict toxicities of cardiovascular drugs. He employs a translational approach to investigate pharmacogenomic associations using observational studies, functional genomics techniques, and eventually prospective clinical trials.
