Pharmacogenomics (PGx) 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

Join the LinkedIn Group.

Programs of Interest
University of Florida Training Program
The University of Florida announces a new training program funded by the National Institutes of Health’s National Human Genomic Research Institute. The Program for Applied Research and Development in Genomic Medicine, or PARADIGM, offers trainees mentoring from world-renowned scientists, clinical exposure in multiple areas of genomic medicine and stimulating career development opportunities within the robust, interdisciplinary research environment at UF. Learn more here.
