Precision Medicine: Using Genotype to Inform Prescribing

Presented at: Drug Discovery 2018
Speaker
  • Associate Professor & Director, Center for Pharmacogenomics, University of Florida College of Pharmacy
    Biography
      Larisa H. Cavallari, Pharm.D., is an Associate Professor and Associate Chair in the Department of Pharmacotherapy and Translational Research, Director of Center for Pharmacogenomics, and Associate Director of the Personalized Medicine Program at the University of Florida. She received her Pharm.D. degree from the University of Georgia, followed by a pharmacy practice residency at the VA Medical Center in Memphis, Tennessee and a fellowship in cardiovascular pharmacogenomics at the University of Florida. Her research involves discovery of genetic associations with drug response and their translation into clinical practice. Her research is currently funded by the NIH and FDA in addition to receiving industry support.

    Abstract

    Precision medicine allows for prediction of drug response and tailoring drug therapy based on genetic variability. This talk will provide examples of precision medicine initiatives at the University of Florida Health. Outcomes specific to CYP2C19 genotype-guided antiplatelet therapy will be described as will other efforts to examine outcomes with pharmacogenomic implementations.
