The Human Genome Project is now over 30 years old. Since the project’s launch, the implications of genomics science for healthcare have progressed steadily and it is difficult to keep up with the science. In this session, Nguyen Park will discuss common myths surrounding genetics and pharmacogenomics to teach the learner how this information can be used in daily practice. After a review of the current state and the science behind it, she will provide an overview of current uses of genetics and pharmacogenomics. Additional ethical issues, risks, and future directions will be considered.
