• Pharmacokinetics: the study of the time course of absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion (i.e., disposition) of drugs in the body.
  • Pharmacodynamics: the study of the relationship between drug concentrations and drug response in the body.
  • Pharmacogenomics: the study of how genetic variation influences interindividual variability in drug disposition and response.

Academic and private investigators who wish to incorporate pharmacokinetics and pharmacogenomics into their research programs are invited to contact the Center for opportunities to collaborate with members.
