Learn how advances in biomedicine hold the potential to revolutionize drug development, drug treatments, and disease prevention: where are we now, and what does the future hold? This course will present short primers in genetics and mechanisms underlying variability in drug responses. A series of case studies will be used to illustrate principles of how genetics are being brought to bear on refining diagnoses and on personalizing treatment in rare and common diseases. The ethical and operational issues around how to implement large scale genomic sequencing in clinical practice will be addressed.

This course is not for an amateur. Lots of background knowledge is needed to get full appreciation. This course is from one of the leading centers on genomic medicine and the material reflects this.
The course is very useful for all physicians to diagnoise the disorder and to suggest the solution for their problem and also can explain the cause of the disorder from the root that;s genome.
This is a really great course it was very informative, interesting and well structured and I enjoyed the lessons, Prof. Roden did a really great job in this course. Thank you!
One of the best courses that I ever completed on coursera. Dr. Dan Roden speaks flawlessly and the way he speaks followed my flow of thoughts and logic. Great course indeed.
I learned more about pharmacogenomics and its application, which is crucial for my career development as a young graduate in biology who is pursuing health sciences.
This course really helped me understand the precision medicine in terms of genetic variants and its effects on drug metabolism and treatment. Thanks to Prof. Roden
Thank you! I think I'm going to review/re-take this course at least one more time as the lectures are really interesting and insightful.
very informative course at advanced level and also taps the basics required to understand the advanced concepts wherever necessary.
Extremely recommended for our medical experts. More than ever, this course encapsulates the medical ideal of personalized medicine.
I have been waiting for a course like this and what a great initiative! The instructor language is very accessible and clear.
It was a great course and so much information. I would surely like to get more knowledge and insight of the topic discussed.
A really good course to increase your knowledge about individual patient health and their therapy based on their genetics.
It was a great learning experience. Would love to do more such courses, if with any specialization in oncology field.
Professor was engaging, had a nice speaking voice and the material was presented in a cohesive, analytical way.
Very interesting subject. Very useful for the medical professionals as well as those interested on the subject.
I like how they interview people who work in the clinic and talk about the applications to real cases
Very detailed cases. The instructor discussed each case with in-depth analysis and insights.
An amazing course, very useful, very informative, so on point and comprehensible.
fascinating course but it didn't cover side effects in most pharmaceuticals.
Very well presented. Covers relevant and broad range of material.
