Dr. Krynetskiy is an Associate Professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences. He earned his Ph.D. and D.Sci. degrees at the Moscow State University, Moscow, Russia. Dr. Krynetskiy's active research program integrates several disciplines including human genetics, molecular and cellular biology, and molecular pharmacology. The ultimate goal of this study is to identify inherited factors which define an individual's response to pharmacotherapy, and to develop genetically based diagnostic tools for "personalized medicine."
Dr. Krynetskiy's previous academic positions included Belozersky Institute for Physicochemical Biology (Moscow, Russia), University of Tennessee, and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (Memphis, TN). Dr. Krynetskiy co-authored about 80 articles in peer-reviewed journals including Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (USA), Journal of Biological Chemistry, Journal of Clinical Oncology, Annals of Internal Medicine, Molecular Pharmacology, Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics, Cancer Research, Molecular Cancer Therapeutics, and Pharmacogenetics. In the Pharm. D. curriculum, Dr. Krynetskiy introduced a new course "Pharmacogenomics" and a lab exercise "Pharmacogenetic variations." He also teaches "Advanced Pharmacogenomics" to the graduate students.
Dr. Krynetskiy is a Director of the Jayne Haines Center for Pharmacogenomics and Drug Safety, and is leading several collaborative projects with other departments at Temple University, including School of Medicine and Temple University Hospital.
