May 6 ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE: NO LONGER JUST A HOSPITAL PROBLEm
WARREN ROSE, UW-MADISON, SCHOOL OF PHARMACY
Warren joined the University of Wisconsin School of Pharmacy in 2007 as an Assistant Professor (CHS) in the Pharmacy Practice Division. Prior to arriving at UW, he earned his Pharm.D. from Butler University and then completed a PGY-1 residency in pharmacy practice at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, IL. Following residency training, he then completed a post-doctoral fellowship in infectious disease pharmacotherapy at the Anti-Infective Research Laboratory at Wayne State University, Detroit, MI.
Warren's translational research interests involve the pharmacodynamic effects of antimicrobials on antibacterial resistance development and virulence expression. His laboratory incorporates multiple in vitro modeling systems to simulate antimicrobial exposures against multi-drug resistant pathogens. These studies are used to evaluate optimal antibiotic activity, antibiotic penetration into simulated infections, the development of antibiotic resistance, and virulence His clinical studies involve the impact of patient immune responses and bacterial virulence on the treatment outcome of invasive S. aureus infections.
