Master of Science degree in Pharmacogenomics

General

Program Description

Manchester University’s Master of Science degree in Pharmacogenomics (MS in PGx) gives students the unique opportunity to enter one of the newest and most exciting fields of science: personalized medicine, also known as precision medicine. The study of the relationship between an individual’s genes and his or her response to a medication allows physicians and other clinicians to prescribe drugs to maximize therapy early on and avoid or decrease the chance of adverse effects. Pharmacogenomics is a revolutionary application of science, and Manchester University offers one of the only degree programs in the world focusing on this “here and now,” cutting-edge field!

With an MS  in PGx, you will be ready for employment in the genetic testing and pharmaceutical industries as an applied scientist who can work on all aspects of pharmacogenomic testing including sample accessioning and preparation, sample analysis, data storage, data mining and reporting. You will also be equipped to pursue a Ph.D. or a professional degree in fields like medicine, pharmacy or dentistry. This program can also expand your capabilities in professional fields, such as genetic counseling.
