Dr. Howard Jacob is a leader in the genetics and genomics fields. He and his team were the first to save a patient’s life through genomic sequencing. His passion for improving the lives of critically ill patients has been the catalyst for his determination to bring whole genome sequencing into the clinical setting to affect patient care. Dr. Jacob has published more than 250 peer-reviewed articles focused on genetic mapping of complex diseases and building genomic resources to understand the impact of genetic variation.

Hear him speak at the School of Pharmacy about the growing role of genome sequencing in medication management and the pivotal role that pharmacists play in pharmacogenomics and precision medicine.
