In January Manchester University will begin their new Pharmacogenomics or PGx online master’s program. This is the only online master’s program of its kind in the world and it was created here in Fort Wayne.
Pharmacogenomics or PGx is the study of how genes affect a person’s response to drugs. Until now, drugs have been created with the idea that they will effect everyone the same. The study of PGx can make treatment more personalized and it can mean less error and better outcomes.
