His research interests include drug development and regulatory science, quantitative clinical pharmacology and pharmacogenomics.

Rada Savic, PhD

Assistant Professor in Pharmacometrics, UCSF

Dr. Savic's research uses computational methods to study the dynamic interplay between disease progression, drug and biomarker response across relevant scales (molecule, cell, tissue, organ & whole body) in order to determine causal links underlying variability in (safety and efficacy) clinical outcomes. Her goal is to determine the optimal dosage, timing, and duration of therapeutic regimens and ultimately develop precise, personalized treatments.
