Graduate Programs in Pharmacogenomics

Where Innovation Meets Medication

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 wherever you are in your educational or professional journey, Manchester offers a way for you to break into the pharmacogenomics field.
