Professional Summary:

My lab‘s main research focus has been on clinical pharmacology and clinical-translational pharmacometric approaches as it relates to antibiotics and the treatment of extensively resistant and pan resistant bacteria. Our current projects are looking into novel dosing schemes used in the treatment of resistant gram negative ‘superbugs;‘ developing model-based approaches to optimize treatment regimens; and using population studies in tandem with my wet-bench research to better understand what these new therapies mean for patient treatment. As a group of clinician-scientists, our objectives are to design, test, then implement patient- and bacteria-specific treatments in order to optimize patient outcomes.
