Title Details
Frederick Coffman  January 4, 2020 Dr. Frederick Coffman is an Associate Professor in the School of Health Professions with joint appointments in the Department of Health Informatics and the Department of Physiciasn Assistant Studies and Practice, as well as an adjunct appointment in the Department of Pathology in the Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. He earned a BS in Chemistry from California State University at Long Beach and a Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of California at Riverside. Prior to joining the School of Health Professions, Dr. Coffman spent over 25 years as a medical school faculty member (Hahnemann University and New Jersey Medical School). He has performed basic and applied research in the areas of cancer and immunology; his areas of focus include the synergistic enhancement of TNF-mediated tumor cell killing by specific classes of DNA topoisomerase II inhibitors, the function of the chitinase family protein YKL-40 as a tumor cell survival factor, the regulation of DNA replication initiation in leukemia cells, and most recently differences in the biophysical properties of low grade and highly malignant cancer cells. He has served on the doctoral thesis advisory committees of over 100 graduate students, and has served as Associate Director of three doctoral graduate programs and multiple graduate school courses. He has given lectures in over 27 different graduate school, medical school, dental school, and health professions courses. He has published his research in numerous peer-reviewed publications, written invited reviews and book chapters, and served as a panelist on national, state and foundation study sections. He has presented his work at national meetings. He is currently involved in several research projects focused on cancer informatics and the biophysical profiling of cancer cells. In the Biomedical Informatics graduate program, Dr. Coffman mentors graduate students and serves as course director for the Biomedical Imaging, Disease Processes and Systems, and Translational Informatics: Biomarkers and Personalized Healthcare courses. In the Physician Assistant program, Dr. Coffman has served as course director for the Biochemistry, Genetics and Pathology courses, and currently serves as co-course director for Scientific Foundations of Medicine and Pathophysiology.
