3+1 Pharmacogenomics

Harnessing the Power of Precision Medicine

Whether you want to conduct the research that continues to revolutionize precision medicine or be part of the clinical implementation of those findings, a Master of Science in Pharmacogenomics degree from WNE will prepare you to help shape the future of personalized medicine.

Pharmacogenomics is a fast-growing field that helps medical practitioners prescribe personalized treatment plans to patients based on how they may respond to medications due to their DNA sequence. Pharmacogenomics supports precision medicine, which explores a patient’s genetics, environment, and lifestyle to craft a treatment plan that will best suit the patient. The goal of this modern approach to medication therapy is to optimize response and beneficial outcomes while limiting adverse effects.

Join this emerging field on the cutting-edge of medicine and become part of the life-changing breakthroughs in the pharmacogenomics industry.
