Drug research with the Clinical Practice Research Database (CPRD)

Dr. Susan Jick has been in the field of pharmaco-epidemiology for over 35 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 Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD) 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 many different diseases, to safety of drug use in the first trimester of pregnancy and use of folic acid to prevent neural tube defects. Dr Jick teaches the drug epidemiology class at BUSPH and serves as an advisor to masters and doctoral students in epidemiology.
