Jayne Haines Center for Pharmacogenomics and Drug Safety


The Jayne Haines Center for Pharmacogenomics and Drug Safety was dedicated in 2006. The Center's director, Dr. Evgeny Krynetskiy, is also an Associate Professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences. His research and body of work are ideally suited to the work of the Jayne Haines Center for Pharmacogenomics and Drug Safety. The research capabilities of the center are enhanced through the collaborations he has established. He has also worked to foster support for our research and to provide educational resources.



  • To improve the safety of medication treatment through existing knowledge about genetic variations in human genome.
  • To facilitate collaborative research within Temple University Hospital, the Institute of Drug Safety, and other academic and industry institutions of Philadelphia in support of Translational Research.
  • To serve as an educational resource for Pharmacy Student to enhance therapeutic outcomes by maximizing efficacy and decreasing toxicity of drug therapy.
  • To provide student, faculty and future researchers with training and understanding Pharmacogenetic/Pharmacogenomics study.
  • To pursue a long-term goal of creating an atmosphere in a healthcare community where medical team and patients are aware of genetic variability as a risk factor and practice safe medication treatment.



The center was founded with a generous gift from School of Pharmacy alumna Jayne Lebow Haines (Class of 1954) as a collaborative initiative between basic scientists and clinicians designed to increase the sophistication of genetically based drug therapy (Temple Times, Sept. 21, 2006).


In 2005, in light of new direction in pharmacotherapy, TUSP appointed two faculty with expertise in pharmacogenomics, Evgeny Krynetskiy and Swati Nagar, who will help to guide the work of the Center. Dr. Krynetskiy who serves as Director of JHCPG is one of the first scientists to show that genetics can impact how a drug works in a patient. "The School of Pharmacy is deeply appreciative of this outstanding transformational gift and the opportunity it has provided to begin this exciting initiative. We aspire to make its future success a tribute to Haines' legacy by helping to enhance drug safety and thereby improving the practice of pharmacotherapy," said Peter Doukas, Dean of the School of Pharmacy.
