PharmGKB featured in Stanford Engineering Magazine

PharmGKB was the focus of Dr. Russ Altman’s talk at the 2018 Beckman Symposium held at Stanford in February and is now featured in the latest issue of the Stanford Engineering magazine.

Attendees at the symposium, which focused on technology, innovation and the human genome, were given a guided tour of the PharmGKB website and the different types of information stored in the knowledgebase. PharmGKB currently has information covering around 5,500 genetic variants and over 600 drugs in addition to annotated clinical guidelines, evidence-based drug pathways and integrated information from drug labels from the FDA and other regulatory bodies. Dr. Altman also explained how he uses information from PharmGKB to personalize a patient’s drug therapy in his pharmacogenomics clinic.
