Matthew K. Breitenstein, PhD
Instructor of Biomedical Informatics
Dr. Breitenstein's research program spans the domains of biomedical informatics, translational bioinformatics and molecular epidemiology. He utilizes translational approaches that drive our etiologic understanding of disease and molecular knowledge of therapeutics. He is particularly interested in the pharmacoepidemiology and pharmacogenomics of therapeutics in cancer control.
Dr. Breitenstein comes to Penn after having served as a fellow in the National Cancer Institute-sponsored Cancer Genetic Epidemiology Research Training Program at the Mayo Clinic.
