Clinical Professor of Applied Clinical Science in the Department of Pharmacy Practice and Sciences, College of Pharmacy, University of Iowa (50% appointment) and Clinical Pharmacy Specialist, IRB Reviews, Drug Information Center, Department of Pharmaceutical Care, University of Iowa Healthcare (50% appointment). I completed my B.Sc. in Pharmacy from the University of Iowa in 1976, my M.Sc. in Hospital/Clinical Pharmacy in 1978, my residency at the V.A. Medical Center in Iowa City in 1978 and my Ph.D. in Pharmacokinetics in 1992 also from the University of Iowa.
In the past my research primarily focused on descriptive pharmacokinetics; and using traditional statistical approaches and neural networks to predict pharmacokinetics. During my service in the Burn Treatment Center I had numerous opportunities to investigate altered pharmacokinetics in the hypermetabolic burn population.
My goal is to provide these consultative services and develop a clerkship experience that will generate interest and skills for students who will pursue research in their future residency or faculty appointments.
A portion of my time is also spent providing back-up coverage in the hospital drug information center when the current staff member is on leave or is away from the center on other business and creatively through the development of drug information applications for mobile devices. There is also regular interaction with the residents that provide DI and MUE services.
I provide an advanced practice experience in an underserved country one rotation cycle per year. I have taken students to Kenya, Nicaragua, Belize and Ethiopia in past years.
