Clinical Implementation of Pharmacogenomics: Delivering Genomics to the Bedside

Presented at: Drug Discovery 2018
Speaker
  • Director, Pharmacogenomics at NorthShore University HealthSystem
    Biography
      Dr. Dunnenberger is Director of Pharmacogenomics in the Center for Molecular Medicine at NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore), and leads the various clinical pharmacogenomics implementation projects within the Center for Personalized Medicine. The goal of these projects is to improve the care and health outcomes of NorthShore University HealthSystem patients through pharmacogenomics-based strategies. He joined NorthShore in 2014.

      Dr. Dunnenberger leads the Pharmacogenomics Clinic, which serves as part of a system-wide initiative building upon the health system's strong foundation in genetics and molecular medicine. The Clinic is among only a few across the country, and the first of its kind in the Chicagoland area that pre-emptively screens patients for responses to medications based on genetic makeup. His clinical expertise and research interests include translating pharmacogenomics into clinical practice, developing information technology solutions for delivering genetic information to both clinicians and patients in a practical manner, and evaluating methods for educating healthcare professionals about pharmacogenetics

      Dr. Dunnenberger has co-authored sixteen original publications, including several CPIC guidelines. He earned his PharmD from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center College of Pharmacy in 2012. He completed a PGY1 Pharmacy Practice Residency at Mission Hospital in Asheville, North Carolina, and a PGY2 Clinical Pharmacogenetics Residency in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.

    Abstract

    Pharmacogenomics has emerged as an early use case of precision medicine.  Delivering this new clinical data to clinicians in a ready to use format can be challenging.  This talk will cover key decision points and components needed for a systemic-wide implementation of pharmacogenomics.  NorthShore University HealthSystem’s Personalized Medicine Program will be used as an example to highlight a number of these concepts.  This talk should help the attendee begin to formulate a plan for implementation.
