Committee on Clinical Pharmacology and Pharmacogenomics

Welcome to the Committee on Clinical Pharmacology and Pharmacogenomics

Chair’s Welcome

It is my great pleasure to serve as Chair of the Committee on Clinical Pharmacology and Pharmacogenomics at the University of Chicago and to welcome your interest in our program!

The University of Chicago Fellowship Program in Clinical Pharmacology and Pharmacogenomics offers a world-class training opportunity to qualified post-doctoral individuals (MD, PharmD, PhDs) who wish to acquire advanced expertise in clinical therapeutics — including disciplines such as novel drug development, therapeutic molecular science, immunology, pharmacogenomics, pharmacoeconomics, and therapeutic toxicity mitigation, among many others.

For over 45 years, we have offered this NIH-funded training program – one of only a few such programs in the United States. Our fellowship training brings together individuals like you – curious, early career scientists from diverse skillsets and backgrounds – with our unparalleled Committee faculty who are international experts in their respective research fields, to ask and inspire the next frontier of research questions that will inform discovery and improved use of medical therapies. 

                    Chair, Peter H. O’Donnell, MD

Graduates of our fellowship program have an amazing track record of becoming uniquely competitive for careers in academia, industry, and government, and comprise an international network of alumni who are leading programs in drug development and therapeutic science throughout the world. 

I am truly honored to be able to know and associate with these alumni, our Committee faculty, and our current fellows – who I believe are the best and brightest and share in our collective mission to improve the lives of patients by developing better treatments for disease. If you are interested in learning more about our program, please start by watching our invitational video, and reach out if you have questions or wish to apply!

Personalized Therapeutics Clinic

The purpose of the Personalized Therapeutics Clinic is to provide consultative input from a clinical pharmacologist (physician) and a pharmacist regarding medication issues.

Clinical Pharmacology Boards

Our training program is accredited by the American Board of Clinical Pharmacology (ABCP) which was established with the cooperation of the American College of Clinical Pharmacology, the American Society for Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics, and the American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics.
