OneOme Institute

YOUR SOURCE FOR EDUCATIONAL
PGX RESOURCES

The OneOme Institute was established to facilitate the acceleration and adoption of pharmacogenomics (PGx) into patient care. As a part of OneOme, an industry leader in providing evidence-based PGx tests and provider tools, OneOme Institute focuses on bringing high-quality thought leadership and educational resources to healthcare providers across the globe.

OneOme Institute’s educational efforts are comprised of three key initiatives:

PGXPERIENCE SYMPOSIA

At these events, hosted by a carefully selected partner, attendees can gain first-hand experience with PGx testing and learn from OOI experts and industry peers how to effectively incorporate PGx into patient care.

Online courses

OneOme Institute’s proprietary courses are designed to give providers foundational knowledge about pharmacogenomics so they can successfully deploy programs within their practices.

OneOme Institute collaboration network

The collaboration network brings together PGx experts from around the world. These ambassadors collaborate on research and clinical trials and share their successes and best practices with peers worldwide.

Upcoming events

PGxperience symposia

Coming soon! We are working with several partners across the globe to schedule PGxperience (PGxP) events. Keep your eyes peeled for information about a PGxP symposium in your area.

WHAT HAPPENS AT A PGxP EVENT?

PGxP event programs are developed in collaboration with a local host partner. In addition to plenary sessions / presentations on PGx and personalized medicine, the events provide networking opportunities and give attendees a chance to learn about PGx by interpreting their own RightMed test results. A member of the OneOme Institute will also present aggregated, de-identified PGx data.
