By Sharon Rosen sharonhrosen

At Mayo Clinic, pharmacogenomics – how your genes impact the way you process medications – is helping doctors to take the guess work out of selecting safer, more effective treatment for patients. Mayo researchers have been leaders in developing DNA tests and identifying drug-gene interactions that affect a patient’s response to many medications, such as […]

Mayo Clinic Research Information Center Presents ‘Changing Lives Through Research’

By Jeff Briggs JeffreyBriggs

National DNA Day is coming to Mayo Clinic a couple of days late.  But biomedical research is often like that: you start towards your target, meander around like a person trying to herd cats, and then you analyze your results and discover something else entirely. National DNA Day is a holiday celebrated on April 25 […]

Pharmacogenomics: A Primer

By Jeff Briggs JeffreyBriggs

Pharmacogenomics. Try saying that fast three times in a row. That’s probably why all of us here at the Center for Individualized Medicine, or CIM as we commonly refer to it, probably just call it PGx. Occasionally on the CIM blog, we like to take a step back from our updates on genomic biomarkers in […]
