The PGRN Best Trainee Abstract Awards were presented on October 19, 2017 at the Pharmacogenomics Poster Session at the ASHG 2017 Annual Meeting to the following individuals:
We congratulate these winners and all participants for their excellent presentations of cutting-edge pharmacogenomics research.
The American Physiological Society Journal ‘Physiological Genomics’ is has released a new article format developed exclusively for small-scale SNP data to be rapidly peer-reviewed, called PG SNPs. Associations reported may be as few as a single SNP validation study for any complex polygenic trait. Manuscripts submitted under this peer-reviewed Call for Papers are limited to 2 pages and are required to be presented in the template format designed exclusively for PG SNPs. To facilitate the submission process of such manuscripts with a small but definitive dataset, authors will have access to an easy-to-use, pre-existing template to generate the manuscript. For links to the manuscript submission file formats developed specifically for the PG SNPs article type and other details, please visit
PGRN Pharmacogenomics iPSC Library and Service (PiLS), is seeking applications for pilot projects, to utilize gene edited iPSC clones for SNP validation studies for pharmacogenomics research. Three projects will be selected for service at minimal cost to the investigators.
Eligibility: Any current PGRN member in an academic institute can submit a proposal
Application process: Applicants should write a 5 page proposal (A-F).
The deadline for the complete application is December 31, 2017.
Letters of intent are encouraged, to be submitted by November 30, 2017.
Letters of intent and final applications should be sent electronically (as a single pdf file) to Katherine Santostefano, PhD (firstname.lastname@example.org)
