Bani Tamraz, PharmD, PhD

Associate 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.

Esteban G. Burchard, MD, MPH


I am a physician-scientist with training in pulmonary medicine, genetics, and epidemiology. My research and academic interests center on identifying disease risk factors specific to racial groups, most especially those related to asthma and drug response. I am engaged in a new, international field...

Deanna Kroetz, PhD

Department Chair & Professor

Our lab seeks to understand the molecular basis of interindividual variation in drug response and toxicity. We investigate genetic differences in chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy and other cancer drug phenotypes and search for new therapeutic approaches targeting ABC transporters.

Ryan Hernandez, PhD


I am a professor studying patterns of human genetic variation from global populations using large-scale whole genome sequencing data in order to understand genetic susceptibility to disease and drug response.
