A Pharmacogenomic Promise

Pharmacogenomic testing is an increasingly significant part of many laboratory medicine professionals’ work. The more we learn about genes that affect drug efficacy, metabolism, or even the likelihood of adverse events, the more we can test to ensure that each patient receives the appropriate dose of the appropriate drug with the appropriate monitoring. However, not all tests are equal; some have a greater evidence base behind them or may simply be easier for clinicians or patients to understand.

About the Author

Michael Schubert

While obtaining degrees in biology from the University of Alberta and biochemistry from Penn State College of Medicine, I worked as a freelance science and medical writer. I was able to hone my skills in research, presentation and scientific writing by assembling grants and journal articles, speaking at international conferences, and consulting on topics ranging from medical education to comic book science. As much as I’ve enjoyed designing new bacteria and plausible superheroes, though, I’m more pleased than ever to be at Texere, using my writing and editing skills to create great content for a professional audience.
