Prof. Daniel J. Crona University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, USA1 Series
Dr. Daniel J. Crona is a trained pharmaceutical scientist and clinical pharmacologist, with appointments as an Assistant Professor in the Division of Pharmacotherapy and Experimental Therapeutics at the University of North Carolina’s Eshelman School of Pharmacy and the North Carolina Cancer Hospital. He is faculty at the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive... read moreCancer Center and the UNC Chromatin and Epigenetics Program. At the North Carolina Cancer Hospital, he is licensed as a Clinical Pharmacist Practitioner where his clinical practice is focused on genitourinary malignancies. He has research expertise in precision medicine/pharmacogenetics, pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics, developmental therapeutics, and epigenetics. His overarching career goal is to advance public health by integrating epigenetics, developmental therapeutics, and clinical pharmacology into clinical and translational research that optimizes treatment strategies for hematology/oncology patients. His highly collaborative translational research program is focused on a functional genomics paradigm that helps reveal molecular mechanisms that underlie the interplay between patient genotype, phenotype, and epigenetics. Molecular mechanistic information is then integrated with clinical pharmacology (e.g., pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics) to optimize drug development of novel compounds as well as drug selection and dosing for FDA approved medications.
