Dr. Yusuke Tanigawara is Professor of Clinical Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics, Keio University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.  He teaches clinical pharmacology to medical students and post-graduate students. He is an Adjunct Faculty of University of Florida, College of Pharmacy.

He received his Ph. D. in pharmaceutical sciences from Kyoto University in 1983.  He started working in the field of TDM since 1985 when he joined with Kyoto University Hospital as a faculty member responsible for TDM.  His research interests include pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and optimal dosing algorithms for personalized medicine.  Oncology and infectious diseases are his major fields for research.  He applied population pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic modeling to a number of new drug development as well as rational use of drugs for patient care such as clinical implementation of TDM.  Recently, he also investigates multi-omics biomarkers including pharmacogenomics, proteomics and metabolomics as a novel indicator to predict responder/non-responder variation to drug therapy.  He published more than 180 peer-reviewed original articles and 282 book chapters and review articles. He was distinguished as one of the “ISI Highly Cited Researchers by Thomson Reuters ISI database.

He served as Secretary of the IATDMCT for 4 years, and Chair of the 15th Congress of IATDMCT in Kyoto, 2017.  He was a past President of Japanese Society of Therapeutic Drug Monitoring (JSTDM).

Vision Statement
I envisage the future of the IATDMCT society as the key player for the tailoring of drug therapy in increasingly complicated patients (elderly, with comorbidities and heavy polypharmacy) at the bedside, taking advantage from the presence of active members with excellences and expertise in several fields. The accomplishment of this task requires, however, a day-by-day, two-way strict collaboration with specialists from different medical disciplines. In other words, the labs need to meet/match the clinics!
