Dr. Dunnenberger leads the Pharmacogenomics Clinic, which serves as part of a system-wide initiative building upon the health system’s strong foundation in genetics and molecular medicine. The Clinic is among only a few across the country, and the first of its kind in the Chicagoland area that pre-emptively screens patients for responses to medications based on genetic makeup. His clinical expertise and research interests include translating pharmacogenomics into clinical practice, developing information technology solutions for delivering genetic information to both clinicians and patients in a practical manner, and evaluating methods for educating healthcare professionals about pharmacogenetics
Dr. Dunnenberger has co-authored numerous original publications, including multiple CPIC guidelines. He earned his PharmD from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center College of Pharmacy in 2012.
