Pharmacogenomics Reference from C.H.I.P.S.

Pharmacogenomics
The Search for Individualized Therapies
edited by Julio Licinio
and Ma-Li Wong

This is the very first comprehensive coverage of pharmacogenomics - a new discipline that will revolutionize health care.

Outstanding experts in the field present an overview of the latest work in this young and promising approach and provide an insight into the recent findings for all relevant disease classes.

Indispensable for a wide audience of experts working in the various areas that contribute to this field such as pharmacology, genetics, molecular biology, pharmaceutics, medicinal chemistry and clinical medicine.
