About Caitrin W McDonough
Dr. McDonough received a B.S. in Biochemistry (with a minor in chemistry) from the University of Iowa and then earned a Ph.D in Molecular Medicine and Translational Science from Wake Forest University School of Medicine. After completing graduate studies, she completed a Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Cardiovascular Pharmacogenomics under the direction of Dr. Julie Johnson.
Dr. McDonough is an investigator in the Center for Pharmacogenomics. Her research focuses on identifying and predicting patients at high risk for cardiovascular disease. She uses multiple methods (regression modeling and machine learning) to integrate data from multiple sources (e.g. electronic health records, insurance claims, ‘omics) to identify factors or signatures that are associated with adverse cardiovascular outcomes.
