Your DNA can influence how drugs work on you as an individual. In the same way some people are tall and some are short, some people metabolize drugs differently. On this episode of the Healthcare Triage podcast, Aaron talks to Dr. Todd Skaar, who leads the IU Precision Health Initiative Pharmacogenomics program. You’ll learn about his research into how genes we inherit from our parents can impact the way we respond to drugs.

This episode of the Healthcare Triage podcast is sponsored by Indiana University School of Medicine whose mission is to advance health in the state of Indiana and beyond by promoting innovation and excellence in education, research and patient care.

IU School of Medicine is leading Indiana University's first grand challenge, the Precision Health Initiative, with bold goals to cure multiple myeloma, triple negative breast cancer and childhood sarcoma and prevent type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease.
