Kimberly is a third year PhD candidate in Pharmaceutical Sciences program working under the supervision of Dr. Robert Bies. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Chemistry at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2016 and her master’s degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences with a concentration in pharmaceutical chemistry from the University of Florida in 2018. She also worked as a Pharmacokinetic Study Coordinator for 2 years at Covance implementing NCA via WinNonlin. Her current research focuses on the application of a PBPK model for pre-exposure prophylaxis drugs for HIV and the pharmacokinetic analysis of long-acting forms of naltrexone used for the treatment of opioid addiction.
Jason Dey, PharmD/MS Student, Rochester, NY
Fridays 10:30 - 11:30 a.m.
Jason is currently a P2 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.
Elizabeth Hayden, 2nd Year PhD Student, Long Island, NY
Wednesdays 2:00 - 3:00 p.m.
Elizabeth is a fourth year PhD student in Pharmaceutical Sciences studying the regulation of drug transporters. She received her Bachelor's degree in Biomedical Sciences from the University at Buffalo in 2017, and her Master's degree in Pharmacology from the University of Glasgow in 2018. She is interested in continuing to do research in academia in the future, and in bringing awareness to the mental health struggles experienced by many students in graduate programs.
Jeanine Day, PharmD/MS Student, Staten Island, NY
Tuesdays 1:00 - 2:00 p.m.
Jeanine is a P3 year in the dual-degree PharmD/MS program. She is from Staten Island, NY and graduated with a Bachelors in Forensic Science at John Jay College. Toxicology is her jam, but pharmacy is her passion! Jeanine's life's dream is to be an industrial pharmacist and help develop clinical trials to make better, safer, and more affordable medicines for patients. She is part of the Sprowl lab and is currently researching which transporters are responsible for the ototoxic effects of cisplatin; experimenting with frog oocytes and mice. She loves meeting and working with new people, and believes in taking a holistic approach while caring for patients. In her spare time she enjoys reading, watching Netflix, hiking, and developing new skills. Please drop in on her office hours if you'd like to chat, unwind, or if you need help of any kind.
