He holds clinical appointments within the Department of Pharmacy at UW Health where he works with Antimicrobial Stewardship and Infectious Diseases Teams. He is an Honoraria Fellow of both the Infectious Diseases Society of America and the American College of Clinical Pharmacy.
Rediscovery of Antibiotics
The rediscovery of antibiotics is an emerging concept due to lack of new antibiotic development. This talk will review how our work as well as others lead to the investigation of “older antimicrobials and drugs”, which although now inactive, have promising clinical utility in combination with newer antibiotics.
Antibiotic Resistance in Healthcare
This talk will overview the continuing crisis of antibiotic resistance in healthcare combined with lack of new antibiotic development. Our work describes resistance in local areas and how antibiotics are used in patients and within the health system. This talk helps educate the public on antibiotic use and the critical role of pharmacists as stewards of antibiotics.
Biomarkers of Infections
This talk will highlight our ongoing studies to better understand the inflammatory to anti-inflammatory balance at the onset of serious bacterial infection. This better informs the use of antibiotics using key predictors of patient outcomes. In addition, patient genetics also appear to play an important role in patient response.
