  • My research focuses on characterizing the variation on human pharmacogenome, with particular interest in CYP genes, drug transporters and HLA genes. I studied distribution of clinically relevant variant alleles across different populations and ethnicities to infer their consequence on drug response phenotype. By leveraging AI/ML-based computational tools, I developed methods to interpret functional impact of pharmacogenetic variants, including rare variants as the majority identified from next-generation sequencing projects.
