 Speaker Profile

M.D., Ph.D., MPH, Postdoctoral Scholar, UCSF

Biography
Dr. Zastrozhin made significant and widely recognized contributions to the study of pharmacoepidemiology and the development of personalized medicine at the international level, including the study of the complex mutual influence of omics biomarkers (pharmacogenomic, pharmacometabolomic, pharmacotranscriptomic), as well as their influence on individual drug responses. With more than a decade of academic, clinical, and research experience in these fields, he has exceptional publications and citations record (>80 articles, many first-co-first authored, ~8,000 citations, >80% independent). His work has had a substantial and enduring impact on personalized medicine.

Jeremy led the development and validation of all of Selah’s molecular assays and led the commercialization and application efforts for next generation sequencing at Life Technologies. While at Agencourt Personal Genomics, Jeremy was a co-developer of the SOLiD next-generation sequencing technology, where he co-authored several patents related to next-generation sequencing. Before entering the industry, Jeremy completed his postdoctoral work at the Dept. of Genetics & Complex Diseases at the Harvard School of Public Health. Jeremy earned his master’s degree in Toxicology from the University of Minnesota and his doctorate from Harvard University.

Talk
Leverage the Utility of Pharmacogenomics for Perioperative Treatments
Postoperative pain control remains a challenge for providers without a routine way to select personalized medication. Postop outcomes can show great improvement with pharmacogenetics analysis of multiple gene variants. Learn more about the Prospective Outcomes and Molecular Implementation Support Registry (PROMISRx) Study to better explain interpatient variability in response to perioperative treatment.
