Postdoctoral Fellow: Heewon Seo

Dr. Heewon Seo holds MS and PhD in Biomedical Informatics from Seoul National University College of Medicine, Korea, where he studies pharmacogenomics using next-generation sequencing data for variant- and gene-based analysis to identify genomic variants that associated with drug-induced side effects. Most of his work has pertained to the analysis of genomic data from patients with adverse drug reaction, especially germline mutation. His current focus is on developing a translational framework for precision oncology with experimental preclinical models. Specifically, he aims to better understand in genetic predisposition to adverse drug reactions in tumor patients and its effect on cancer drug response to chemotherapy toward improving current treatment strategies.
