Major Mexican genetic study uncovers basis for health differences among Latinos

The most comprehensive genetic study of the Mexican population to date has revealed as much genetic differentiation as the variation between some Europeans and Asians.

Bani Tamraz, PharmD, PhD

Tamraz
Assistant Professor

My primary interest is identification of genetic determinants of drug response through modern methods aimed at addressing pharmacogenomics research and translating that information into new diagnostics and treatment strategies at point-of-care.

Sourav Bandyopadhyay, PhD

Bandyopadhyay
Associate Professor

I seek to understand, at the systems level, how biological networks within cancer cells are fundamentally different from those in normal cells. Using a variety of experimental techniques, I design new platforms for the rational application of personalized medicine and the design of combination cancer therapies.

Kathy Giacomini, PhD

Giacomini
Professor & CERSI Co-Director

My research focuses on membrane transporters, which are of great importance to drug disposition and response. I am particularly interested in genetic variants in membrane transporters that are determinants of drug response and in harnessing transporters to enhance drug targeting. 

Nadav Ahituv, PhD

Ahituv
Professor

My research focuses on understanding how nucleotide variation in gene regulatory elements can lead to human disease and other phenotypes. 

Child’s illness fuels lab team’s search for early-life epilepsy diagnostics

The lab of UCSF School of Pharmacy faculty member Nadav Ahituv, PhD, studies how abnormalities in DNA segments that control the activity of genes could lead to diseases.

Reflection: 30 years of top NIH funding for UCSF School of Pharmacy

Giacomini to receive Therapeutic Frontiers Lecture Award

Kathy Giacomini, PhD, co-chair of the Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences, UCSF Schools of Pharmacy and Medicine, will receive the 2010 Therapeutic Frontiers Lecture Award from the American College of Clinical Pharmacy on October 17, 2010, in Austin, Texas at ACCP's annual meeting.

Giacomini to lead $15.1 million in research funding to improve the use of drugs in individuals

Kathy Giacomini, PhD, co-chair of the UCSF Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences and an expert in the field of pharmacogenomics, is leading two research projects funded by two grants totaling $15.1 million over the next five years to expand research into how genes affect an individual's response to medication and to strengthen a global network of researchers

Symposium on the future of therapeutics inaugurates new UCSF department

In the first symposium held by the newly minted UCSF Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences, researchers described progress in the fields of systems biology, pharmacogenomics, and bioengineering, and how scientists in these fields are working in concert to develop novel diagnostics and therapeutics to effectively and safely diagnose and treat disease.
