Biographical Sketch

Nakyung Jeon, B.Pharm., M.P.H., Ph.D., joined the department of pharmaceutical outcomes and policy as an assistant scientist in 2017. During her doctoral training, she worked on development of risk score models to predict patients at higher risk of adverse drug events, using electronic health records obtained from UF hospitals. She also received the second-best student abstract at the 32nd International Conference on Pharmacoepidemiology & Therapeutic Risk Management, or ICPE, in Ireland. In her doctoral dissertation, she evaluated the risk of acute kidney injury associated with use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs in hospitals using advanced statistical methods to control for time-dependent confounding.
