The MGH Division of Clinical Research is sponsoring a course focused on research in genomic and precision medicine. Precision medicine has the potential to change how health care is practiced. An important component of precision medicine is the use of an individual’s genomic information to offer targeted treatment.

Distinguished faculty from MGH will provide an introductory lecture on precision medicine, discuss current challenges in pharmacogenomic research as well as the direction of research in cardiology and oncology.

This course is intended for clinical research investigators at the fellow and faculty level.
