CPIC grant awarded
The co-PIs of the Clinical Pharmacogenetics Implementation Consortium (CPIC), Drs. Mary Relling of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (SJCRH) and Teri Klein of Stanford University, will receive $5 million over the next 5 years from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to continue and expand the project. CPIC was created in 2009 as a partnership between the Pharmacogenomics Research Network (PGRN) and PharmGKB to provide peer-reviewed, evidence-based genotype-directed drug prescribing guidelines for clinicians. The new funding will enable CPIC to continue its mission to create and update guideline publications and supporting materials to enable translation of pharmacogenomics into the clinic and electronic health care records.
