Professor, Department of Biomedical and Pharmaceutical Sciences and Director of the Skaggs Institute for Health Innovation, University of Montana

Erica Woodahl received a BS in Biochemistry at the University of Notre Dame, a PhD from the Department of Pharmaceutics at the University of Washington, and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in clinical pharmacokinetics at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, WA. Translation of pharmacogenomics into clinical practice requires genetic research with diverse patient populations to accurately predict drug response and toxicity for all people regardless of geographic location, ethnicity, or age. We use community-based participatory research to engage rural, tribal, and pediatric populations in precision medicine research and to address inequities in access to pharmacogenomics for underserved communities.
