WEBINAR SERIES INFORMATION
For PhD Jeff Novack, the world of pharmacology and pharmacognosy came together when he started teaching at Bastyr University. The pharmacology, immunology, infectious disease, and pathology courses he taught were expanded to include a more holistic view of the intersection between drugs, the human body, botanical medicine and the healing process. As a co-investigator on an NIH grant examining the immunological effects of Trametes versicolor, a medicinal mushroom, he was able to look into mechanisms of medicinal fungi. So this was no ordinary pharmacology course - from antibiotic resistance and statin toxicity to protocols for weaning patients off of hypertensives safely and effectively, this will be a useful guide to pharmaceuticals; their clinical utility, inherent risks and solutions to the good drug/bad drug dilemma.

Jeffrey Novack, Ph.D.
Dr. Jeff Novack earned his Ph.D. in pharmacology from the University of Washington School of Medicine (Department of Pharmacology) in signal transduction. He did post-doctoral research in immunology and tyrosine kinase signaling at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center and later taught pharmacology, immunology, infectious disease, and pathology at the medical school level for 13 years.
Dr. Novack currently is on the faculty at Pacific Northwest University where he teaches immunology, portions of pathology, and pharmacology. He has done research on the effects of PSK on immune function in mice and humans and is interested in the effect of natural products on the innate and adaptive immunity and on inflammation.
