Developing research collaborations, between academia, heathcare, industry, regulators and patients
Pharmacogenetics is research into how an individual’s genes affect their response to a particular medication. This research aims to improve drug development, efficiency and safety.
Stratified medicine (personalised, precision, or P4 medicine) uses specialised diagnostic tests to groups patients according to their disease subtype to determine the most appropriate treatment. It is also used to predict risk of disease and then offer preventative treatment, or suggest changes in life style, to minimise the effect of disease.
