CPIC Meeting at ASCPT on March 15, 2017

The Clinical Pharmacogenetics Implementation Consortium(CPIC®)  Meeting will be held on March 15, 2017, in conjunction with the 2017 Annual Meeting of the American Society for Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics (ASCPT) on March 15-18, 2017 (Washington, DC).

The one-day symposium is organized by the Clinical Pharmacogenetics Implementation Consortium (CPIC®) (cpicpgx.org) as part of the Pharmacogenomics Research Network (PGRN) (www.pgrn.org).   The CPIC-PGRN Meeting is open to all and features presentations from a world-class group of speakers who will describe current examples of implementation of pharmacogenomics in the clinic. There will also be panel discussions to summarize topics and encourage audience participation. Presentations will include “best cases” as well as challenging cases for implementation, and will include international perspectives on clinical use of pharmacogenomics.  More details can be found at https://cpicpgx.org/meetings/

CPIC® is one of the enabling resources funded by the National Institutes of Health as part of the PGRN, and is a shared project between PharmGKB (www.pharmgkb.org) and the PGRN.  The mission of the PGRN is to catalyze and lead research in precision medicine for the discovery and translation of genomic variation influencing therapeutic and adverse drug effects. CPIC’s goal is to facilitate translation by overcoming some of the barriers to implementation of pharmacogenetic tests into clinical practice. Over 150 CPIC members from 19 countries participate to developing tools to facilitate clinical implementation of pharmacogenetics, primarily by developing freely available, peer-reviewed, updatable, and detailed gene/drug clinical practice guidelines.
