Denise McKeown PhotoThis month IATDMCT Blogger, Jana Stojanova, interviewed fellow Young Scientist Denise McKeown (Glasgow, UK) to see the path her career has taken over the past 13 years. Denise has been an active YS member of IATDMCT for the past 12 years and is currently the Chair of both the Young Scientist Committee and the Communications Committee.

Celebrating Various Anniversaries

This month we highlight an article in the most recent Compass issue (June), celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the ImmunoSuppressants Bayesian dose Adjustment (ISBA) web-site in Limoges, France. Jean-Baptiste Woillard and Franck Saint-Marcoux, on behalf of the Pharmacometrics Scientific Committee, share their experiences working behind the platform. The publication coincides with last month’s interview (Professor Pierre Marquet), and describes in greater detail the history and rationale behind the platform, as well as its successes.

Q&A with Pierre Marquet

Marquet 150x200This month I had the privilege to interview the director of my doctoral thesis, Professor Pierre Marquet (Limoges, France). I thought I knew the department and research laboratory, and their respective histories, quite well. I was delighted to learn a lot more from the interview, a testament to the extraordinary and diverse work achieved by Pr. Marquet, spanning several decades.

An Interview with Denny Fleming

FlemingThis month our interview comes from Vellore in Tamil Nadu, India. Denny Fleming, honorary professor at the Clinical Pharmacology Unit of the Christian Medical College, kindly shared her experiences. Denny completed her academic formation in Birmingham, United Kingdom, and has worked at the National Health Service (NHS), the University of Science and Technology in Kumasi, Ghana, and clinical trials in osteoarthritis, Roussel Uclaf, UK, prior to joining the Unit in Vellore in 1998.

Denny’s story reflects typical and unique challenges, but also a great deal of achievements, many of which have been supported through collaborations with IATDMCT colleagues.
