Center for Personalized Therapeutics

By making pharmacogenomic information prompt, accessible, and understandable for physicians, The Center for Personalized Therapeutics (CPT) leads the way in translating genomic discovery to improve care for patients.

Explore our program

In 2000 the first draft sequence of the human genome was released, and widespread use of techniques to implement and translate such genomic knowledge was slow to be adopted by the medical community.  In 2009, the future leadership of the CPT felt that there was a critical mass of information regarding the association of individual genetic variability with drug-related adverse event and response outcomes and therefore established the Center.

The Center embarked on its first project in 2011, the 1200 Patients Project, which uses a preemptive ‘medical system model’ for personalized care that makes relevant pharmacogenomic information instantaneously accessible at the time of prescribing to reduce the use of inapprorpiate and high risk medications in patients for whom pharmacogenomic results are known, thereby decreasing adverse events and non-responsive rates.

“Translating Genomic Discovery to Therapeutics”

A word from the deputy director of Center for Personalized Therapeutics. Talking about what is the program, why is the program is a leader in clinical research and implementation. @ Dr. O’Donnel. 

Leader in personalized Therapeutics

We are the leading center of personalized therapeutics in the US. Aiming to lead the way in translating genomic discovery to improved care for patients, our center have 3 completed and four ongoing projects. With 529 providers enrolled in our studies, CPT strives to ______.  {Better wording for this needed @ Emily}

OUr Goal

One of the key goals of the Center is to develop systems for efficient collection, storage, and clinical application of genetic data and to train physicians in the use of personalized genetic information as tools in patient care. We hope this can help identify the patients most likely to respond to, or be harmed by, specific therapies.

 

Current CPT research focuses on the evaluation and application of pharmacogenomics  information in the context of clinical trials at all phases of drug development.

 

In the near future, the Center plans to expand the availability of pre-emptive clinical testing for use in additional patient populations at a variety of institutions around the country.  The ultimate goal of the Center is to develop innovative, personalized and effective therapies for all patients, and promote the use of genetic testing to develop personalized treatment plans.

Our Latest Projects

CPT has 3 completed projects and 4 ongoing projects. In the past, CPT has initiated the 1200 Patient Project, ACCoUNT Project, Impress Trial and PhoCUS Trial. Right not, CPT is working on Chablis Project, PTC Project, Diversity Studies, and Pharmacoeconomics.
