Jason Dey.

Jason Dey, PharmD/MS Student, Rochester, NY
Email Jason

Jason is currently a P3 student in the PharmD/MS dual degree program in Pharmaceutical Sciences, currently researching the impact of membrane transporters on the toxicity of a certain chemotherapy agent. He has been involved in research since 2013 as an undergraduate at SUNY Brockport. Jason has volunteered extensively helping addicts and has worked as a personal care aid/caregiver for the elderly/disabled both in nursing homes and (mainly) in home since 2013 as well. His involvement in direct patient care helps give insight into the perspective of elderly patients and their often limited knowledge of what medications they're on and why, which is largely what spurred him to go into pharmacy instead of medicine. Jason has wide ranging interests and experiences and is available to help answer any questions you may have or are just seeking some advice in general.
