    Biography

      Hyun graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a BS in Biological Sciences and a minor in chemistry in 2008. He then spent 5 years doing clinical neuroradiology research of HIV infection at Massachusetts General Hospital and translational immunology and genomics research of autoimmune disorders at Brigham and Women’s Hospital before going back to school at MCPHS University-Worcester, where he graduated from in 2016 with his PharmD. He then completed a two year fellowship in Clinical Pharmacogenomics and Biomedical Informatics from MCPHS University-Boston/Boston Children’s Hospital in 2018. Since then, he has stayed on at BCH where he splits his time as a specialist for the Clinical Pharmacogenomics Service at BCH and as a clinical pharmacist staffing various areas within the BCH pharmacy department. Hyun is an adjunct professor at MCPHS University-Boston and he regularly precepts 6th year pharmacy students on rotation. He has co-authored numerous research articles both in his prior translational research work as well as his current work in pharmacogenomics. Hyun continues to be involved in various pharmacogenomics-related research studies at BCH. Hyun is also very involved in professional organizations, serving as chair of the Medication Safety Special Interest Group in the Pediatric Pharmacy Association (PPA) and is active within the Guideline Dissemination Subgroup of the Clinical Pharmacogenetics Implementation Consortium (CPIC).


    Abstract

    DATE:  September 11, 2020

    TIME:   08:00am PT, 11:00am ET

     

    This is the third topic in the webinar series on ‘Predictive Genomics for Population & Personalized Health’.
     
    The Clinical Pharmacogenomics Service (CPS) at Boston Children’s Hospital works to make medications safer and more effective by incorporating patient’s genetic information when making decisions about medication choices. It is a unique service; one of only a small handful of centers in the US that apply genetics to determine variations in medication response to improve clinical care. The CPS represents a tangible step towards personalized medicine in which healthcare  intervention is focused on intervening before the problem evolves.
     
    Boston Children’s Hospital has implemented preemptive pharmacogenomics testing since 2012 and patient volume averages 6 clinic visits per week with use of around 10 multi-gene panels per month.
    This webinar will provide a general framework for logistical considerations relevant to operating and developing such a large-scale clinical pharmacogenomics service including testing logistics, integration into informatics systems, and stakeholder support. Cost avoidance projections, select case reports and real patient experiences will also be shared.
     
    Learning Objectives:

    • Review clinical cases & clinical decision support
    • Assess cost avoidance projections
    • Deploy infrastructure for large scale implementation

     

    Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.

     

    LabRoots is approved as a provider of continuing education programs in the clinical laboratory sciences by the ASCLS P.A.C.E. ® Program. By attending this webinar, you can earn 1 Continuing Education credit once you have viewed the webinar in its entirety.
