Rena J. Eudy-Byrne, Ph.D.

Research Scientist

Rena joined Metrum in November 2015 after completing her Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Connecticut. Her dissertation work included extending a systems pharmacology model of bone and osteoporosis to be relevant for the development new therapies. Part of this work included linking simulated changes in bone mineral density to a hazard model of fracture in a Bayesian framework in order to predict the probability of fracture in osteoporosis patients. Analysis tools for establishing a priori identifiability of target-mediated drug disposition and other indirect response-type models were also part of this larger work. Rena brings 5 years of industry experience to the team, including work in preclinical development in metabolic systems and neuroscience and using systems pharmacology models to inform clinical decisions.
