The center is a collaborative group of pharmacokinetics and pharmacogenomics experts with the scientific and technical expertise, knowledge, and physical resources to conduct high-level translational research in these fields.
Academic and private investigators who wish to incorporate pharmacokinetics and pharmacogenomics into their research programs are invited to contact the Center for opportunities to collaborate with members.
Dr. Kechris' research focuses on the development and application of statistical methods for analyzing omics data. Dr. Kechris has several focus areas: (1) analyzing transcription factor binding and miRNA data to study the regulation of transcription and post-transcriptional processing, (2) examining the genetic and epigenetic factors controlling gene expression, (3) exploring the metabolome, and (4) integrating multiple omics data. Kechris collaborates with investigators studying alcohol abuse using animal models, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in the COPDGene genetic epidemiology study, and diabetes and obesity in birth cohorts.
