The Genetics of Drug Responses
Debbie Nickerson is professor of Genome Sciences and adjunct professor of Bioengineering. Dr. Nickerson is an expert in the study of human genetic variation. For example, her laboratory collaborated with others to show that a large fraction of the variation required in dosage for warfarin, a commonly used blood thinner, is due to small differences in one specific human gene.
