"Pharmacogenetics is a field aimed at uncovering the April 24, 2007ecture will begin with an overview of the field and description of genetic and molecular biology terms that are important to understanding pharmacogenetics data. Dr. Johnson will then discuss the β1-adrenergic receptor polymorphisms, our current understanding of the effects of these polymorphisms on the protein’s function, and data associating the polymorphisms with resting hemodynamics and hypertension. Finally, Dr. Johnson will discuss recent data from her laboratory of the association between β1-adrenergic receptor polymorphisms and the antihypertensive response to β-blockers."
