Dr. Stephen Davis is the Theodore E. Woodward Professor and Chair, Department of Medicine, University of Maryland School of Medicine; Physician-in-Chief, University of Maryland Medical Center; Director,  Institute for Clinical and Translational Research and Vice President of Clinical Translational Science, University of Maryland, Baltimore. 

I am the John Whitehurst endowed Professor of Medicine (part-time) and Associate Dean for Personalized Medicine. My research interests include type 2 diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis, and cardiovascular disease. I am also interested in understanding why some patients respond well to certain medications while others do not. As a physician-scientist, my ultimate goal is to bring new genomic discoveries to patients for more effective individualized treatment and prevention of these health and other conditions.

I am an Assistant Professor and a board-certified genetic counselor, with hands-on experience in academic, clinical, and industry settings. Throughout my career, I have gained experience in a wide range of areas such as whole exome/genome sequencing, hereditary cancer, cardiovascular and neurological syndromes, reproductive genetics, and pharmacogenomics. I am passionate about improving healthcare through precision medicine and population genomics research.

I am an Associate Professor and Director of the University of Maryland Medicine (UMM) Biorepository, which safely and securely stores hundreds of thousands of samples for use in research. The Biorepository will be the home for samples collected as part of My Healthy Maryland Precision Medicine Research.

I am a board-certified genetic counselor and Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine with clinical, laboratory, and research responsibilities. I am also the Assistant Director of Student Research for the Master’s in Genetic Counseling Program. My goal is to translate research findings into clinical care and increase access to personalized medicine.

My research is focused on understanding how an individual’s DNA influences how they respond to medications. The goal of this type of research is to optimize doses and types of medications in order to maximize the likelihood of response and minimize the risk of side effects.

My research interests include statistical informatics, systems pharmacogenomics, and network medicine. My research mission is to leverage the gap between the analytical needs of arising from multi-source biological “big” data and advanced informatics approaches.

I am a board certified genetic counselor, genetic epidemiology researcher, Associate Professor in the Departments of Medicine and Epidemiology & Public Health, and the Program/Track Leader for the MS/PhD Program/Track in Human Genetics & Genomic Medicine.  My research interests include the genetics of complex diseases, particularly type 2 diabetes, monogenic diabetes, and innovative approaches to increasing access to genomic medicine for all who can benefit and genomic education for all who desire to learn and teach.
