Current research interests

My current research interest is in the field of pharmacogenetics and precision therapy. I am mainly focused on investigate factors that contribute drugs’ pharmacokinetic / pharmacodynamic variability (genetic factors, drug interactions, pathophysiological factors,..) with a view to identy patients at risk for either suboptimal treatment efficacy or adverse effects and toxicity.
