MINNEAPOLIS (October 9, 2017) – This week, OneOme will participate in the Individualizing Medicine 2017 Conference in Rochester, Minn. The event, which is hosted by the Mayo Clinic Center for Individualized Medicine, features experts from around the world sharing advice on the practical application of genomic and precision medicine.
OneOme will have an exhibit throughout the two-day conference and its team will share their pharmacogenomic expertise through a poster and theater presentation. OneOme’s RightMed® solution has the potential to address the crisis of adverse drug reactions and drug ineffectiveness by analyzing how a person’s genes may predict their response to medications. Pharmacogenomics can improve patient health by increasing drug effectiveness, as well as decreasing side effects, adverse drug reactions, and unintended interactions with other medications.
On Monday, October 9 from noon to 12:15 p.m., Don Skifter, PhD, VP Business Development and Clinical Support, will speak on “Considerations for Broadly Adopting Pharmacogenomics within a Health System.”
Later on Monday, from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., clinical development pharmacist Kathleen Bosse, PharmD, will present at the poster reception at the Mayo Civic Center. The poster describes a case study on CYP2C9*2 that explores the substrate-specificity of allele functions and considerations for pharmacogenomics implementation. Co-authors on the poster include Isabelle Iltis-Searcy, PhD, Hennessy McIlvaine, BA, Ross Higgins, MBA, MLS (ASCP), and Bronwyn Ramey-Hartung, PhD.
