Biography

Dr. Susan Jick has been in the field of pharmacoepidemiology for over 25 years working with the Boston Collaborative Drug Surveillance Program where she has conducted research in many areas of drug safety. She has been involved with the use and development of large automated databases including the General Practice Research Database which has become a major resource for conducting drug safety studies and has changed the way these studies are being conducted today. Her research activities range from the safety of drugs such as oral contraceptives in relation to venous thrombosis, hormone replacement therapy in relation to cancers, antibiotics in relation to various serious health outcomes, and statins in relation to autoimmune diseases and diabetes, to safety of drug use in the first trimester of pregnancy and use of folic acid to prevent neural tube defects. Dr Jick helps to run a workshop on methods in conducting drug safety studies that is held each year, she teaches the drug epidemiology class at BUSPH and she serves as an advisor to doctoral students in epidemiology.
