Research

The goal of my research is to acquire quantitative data on transporter localisation, expression and activity within human tissues (brain, intestine, liver, kidney and placenta) and cell models to build physiologically based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) models that better predict drug distribution, drug-drug interactions and the impact of genetic variability on the handling of drug molecules. My research project is funded by UWRAPT, a collaboration between academia and industry (Current members include: Biogen, Bristol Myers Squibb, Genetech, Gilead, Merck, Pfizer and Takeda).
