Personalized Drug Therapy
​These days, personalized medicine and drug therapy has become a groundbreaking approach in the medical field. The main objective of personalized drug therapy within medicine is to tailor medical treatments to each individual patient. Personalized medicine using individuals' genomes to provide a tailored drug development
is also experiencing rapid adoption in healthcare practices through pharmacogenomics.
​Teams should be groups of 3-4 Northeastern undergraduate students. If you don't have a team in mind, no worries! We will play "match maker" and place teams with whole rounded backgrounds to tackle the case.
