Bio: Dr. Luczak is a Postdoctoral Fellow and Adjunct Assistant Professor with the Department of Pharmacy Practice and Pharmaceutical Services at the University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy, Duluth. She earned her PharmD from the University of Minnesota in 2018 and completed a PGY1 residency at St. Luke’s Hospital in Duluth, Minnesota. After residency, she moved into the pharmacogenomics postdoctoral fellowship where she is currently working to implement a clinical pharmacogenetics program at Essentia Health. Her pharmacogenetic service implementation has coincided with pharmacogenetic consult utilization with successful clinical consults occurring both in person and virtually. Her research interests surround pharmacogenetics implementation and is centered around integrating pharmacogenetics into existing clinical pharmacy workflows to expand clinical practice and bring precision healthcare to patients in Greater Minnesota. In her current role as a postdoctoral fellow,she has had the opportunity to collaborate with the MN Grand Challenge Pharmacogenomics Implementation Project and ASHP as well as act as Co-Course Director in the third-year curriculum.
