Pradeep Lukka, PhD, Postdoctoral Fellow, University of Tennessee, TN
As a quantitative pharmacologist, Dr. Lukka’s experience ranges from early development to the evaluation of real‐world data routinely collected in the clinic. These experiences at various stages of drug development have furthered his understanding of these complex processes. He utilizes modeling and simulation strategies. He works with therapeutic drug monitoring data in children being treated with an anti‐epileptic drug used as an off‐label medication. This retrospective utilization of real‐world data provides a valuable opportunity to extract quantitative clinical pharmacology information for rational dosing in pediatric populations. As a new member to ASCPT, Dr. Lukka looks forward to networking with peers from multidisciplinary fields from academia, industry, and translational science.
