Dr. Grace Kuo Recognized by the Institute of Medicine

A Recent Institute of Medicine report on Genetics Education in Graduate and Continuing Health Professional Education-A Workshop Summary, as part of a series on Transforming GenomicsBased Research for Health, featured three workshops and presentations in which Grace Kuo was involved. Grace was the only person involved in the IOM report and workshops with a direct academic appointment in a pharmacy college/school. The report featured Grace in workshop presentations related to education in pharmacogenomics and translation of current pharmacogenomics information to the practitioner. She also discussed the success of her PharmGenEd program, and the dissemination of pharmacogenomic information through-out the world.

The report in an unedited form is now available on the IOM web site http://www.iom.edu/. Grace is also a co-editor of the newly published book. Pharmacogenomics: Applications to Patient Care, 3rd Edition.
