Manchester University offers talk on ‘DNA and Your Medicine’ 

David KisorManchester University invites students, teachers, members of the public and health care professionals to visit Manchester University’s Fort Wayne campus on Wednesday, April 25, for “DNA and Your Medicine.”

The presentation is 4-5 p.m. in the auditorium at 10627 Diebold Road, which is near the Dupont Road interchange off Interstate 69.

It is free and open to the public.

Manchester is a national leader in education related to medicine and DNA. April 25 is National DNA Day, with events around the country.

Manchester is home to the nation’s first and only dedicated master’s degree program in pharmacogenomics, as well as the first dual degree in pharmacy and pharmacogenomics.


This is the 15th annual DNA Day, sponsored by the National Human Genome Research Institute.

National DNA Day commemorates the successful completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003 and the discovery of DNA's double helix in 1953. The Institute began celebrating DNA Day annually on April 25 after the 108th Congress passed concurrent resolutions designating it as DNA Day.

The goal of National DNA Day is to offer students, teachers and the public an opportunity to learn about and celebrate the latest advances in genomic research, and explore how those advances might affect their lives.
