The Human Genome Project was launched in 1990 to determine the DNA sequence of the entire human genome. Since its completion in 2003, the project has paved the way for scientists to gather knowledge about a patientís genome to diagnose, predict, treat and prevent disease. This project also has advanced personalized medicine and pharmacogenomics.

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Richard Weinshilboum, director of the pharmacogenomics program in the Center for Individualized Medicine at Mayo Clinic, will explain how genomic information can tailor treatment to individual patients. Also on the program, Dr. Sophie Bakri, an ophthalmologist at Mayo Clinic, will discuss adult eye health.

Being a paramedic
Paramedics provide first-line medical or emergency care for sick and injured people while they are being transported to the hospital for care. They typically operate in teams, with one person serving as an emergency vehicle operator, while the other continues to provide lifesaving emergency care to the patient while en route to a medical facility.

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Angela Jarrett, a supervisor with Gold Cross Ambulance, will share what itís like being a paramedic. Also on the program, Dr. Matthew Ferber, a geneticist at Mayo Clinic, will explain what information can be uncovered by direct-to-consumer genetic testing.

Human Hibernation
Since Yuri Gagarin achieved the first manned space flight in April 1961, humans have been fascinated by space travel. The world watched as Neil Armstrong walked on the moon in July 1969. Since then, space programs have been looking to the next frontier: humans landing on Mars. According to NASA, a trip to the red planet will require astronauts to spend 250 days confined in a spacecraft to reach the destination.

On this edition of the Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Matthew Kumar, an anesthesiologist at Mayo Clinic, will explain how Mayo Clinic is working with NASA to research medically induced hypothermia. This kind of human hibernation could be a way to help astronauts travel to Mars. Also on the program, Dr. Sundeep Khosla, an endocrinologist at Mayo Clinic, explains the importance of vitamin D. And Jennifer Welper, an executive chef with the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Program, will share ideas for healthy summer grilling.

Antibiotic Resistance and Antibiotic Allergies
Antibiotics have been used for more than 70 years to treat patients who have infectious diseases. Since the 1940s, these drugs have greatly reduced illness and death from infection. However, antibiotics have been used so widely and for so long now that the drugs have become less effective. Organisms the antibiotics are designed to kill have adapted. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, each year in the U.S., at least 2 million people become infected with bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics, and at least 23,000 people die each year as a direct result of these infections.

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Nipunie Rajapakse, an infectious disease specialist at Mayo Clinic, will discuss antibiotic resistance and antibiotic allergies. Also on the program, Dr. John Wilkinson, a primary care physician at Mayo Clinic, discusses whether an annual exam is still necessary. And Dr. Edward Creagan, a medical oncologist at Mayo Clinic, will explore how the high cost of health care is affecting patient's decision-making when it comes to treatment.
