Focused on genomics technology and its application in medicine, agriculture, and evolutionary biology. I was Founding Director (with Marc Feldman) of the Center for Computational, Evolutionary, and Human Genomics. I serve as an advisor to the US federal government, private companies, startups, and non-profits in the areas of computational genomics, population and medical genetics, veterinary and plant genomics, and business strategy.
How Do We Enable Precision Health at Scale for All
Mary Relling, St. Jude
Pharmacists have long recognized that using unique patient characteristics to guide pharmacotherapy decision-making can improve drug response and mitigate drug-associated risks. Age, weight, and dietary habits were among the first patient-specific characteristics used to individualize pharmacotherapy. As technologies advanced, analytic tools that measure surrogate markers of liver and renal function, together with drug concentrations in biological fluids, were adopted to optimize therapeutic regimens. Cutting-edge genomic technologies are now being integrated into patient care for the selection of targeted therapies and identification of those at increased risk of poor pharmacotherapy outcomes. We’re excited to bring together experts who are advancing pharmacogenomics at scale through cutting edge clinical implementation, research, and education.
