    Biography

      Dr Howard McLeod is an internationally recognized expert in precision medicine, having made novel contributions at the discovery, translation, implementation, and policy levels.  He is the Medical Director for Precision Medicine at the Geriatric Oncology Consortium and a Professor at the University of South Florida Taneja College of Pharmacy.  Dr McLeod chaired the NHGRI eMERGE network external scientific panel for the past decade and was a recent member of both the FDA committee on Clinical Pharmacology and the NIH Human Genome Advisory Council.  Dr McLeod has been recognized as a Fellow of both the American Society of Clinical Oncology and the American College of Clinical Pharmacy and was recently ranked #1 USA/#2 World for Pharmacogenomics.  He has also been an active Board Member and/or Founder for over a dozen privately held and publicly traded companies.  Howard has published over 575 peer reviewed papers on pharmacogenomics, applied therapeutics, or clinical pharmacology and continues to work to advance innovative healthcare.


    Abstract

    Pharmacogenomics has had rapid implementation over the past decade, with recent growth in application in oncology, mental health, solid organ transplantation, and more. There has been much focus on specific drug-gene-action relationships, such that there are now a number of actionable pharmacogenomics examples. With the application of panel testing, there are often additional opportunities to impact a patient’s care, beyond the specific disease focus area.  This shift from the gene/drug pairing to the broader look across the patient’s current and future needs is an inflection point in moving pharmacogenomics into routine usage.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Define the impact of pharmacogenomics on a patient’s risk:benefit decision

    2. Identify various challenges in implementing pharmacogenomics from research to practice

    3. Explain current approaches to applying pharmacogenomics panel testing in the clinic
