Dr. Carrie Hoefer, Pharmacogenomics Director
Dr. Hoefer earned her Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Sciences from the University of Buffalo in 2015, specializing in Pharmacogenomics and Epigenetics related to anthracyclines in the lung and the heart. Following her Ph.D Dr. Hoefer pursued a post-doctoral fellowship at Roswell Park Cancer Institute from 2015-2016 in Epidemiology.
After her Post Doctoral Fellowship Dr. Hoefer moved to Fort Wayne Indiana and opened the first Master’s of Pharmacogenomics program in the country both on-campus and online. During her tenure at Manchester she decided to round out her skill set and obtained an MBA from Indiana University at the Kelley School of Business in 2019. Her time as an MBA student provided her with a lot of insight into running online programs, networking, and how to build strong successful programs in academia. Following her MBA Dr. Hoefer worked as a genomics curator at OmniSeq (LabCorp) with cancer oncology.
Dr. Hoefer came to the University of Cincinnati at the end of 2020 and has since launched the Master’s in Pharmacogenomics, and Graduate Certificate in Pharmacogenomics. She continues to help grow all online programs, and takes great pride in the growth and success of all programs at James L. Winkle College of Pharmacy.
