These awards were established by the Faculty of Science’s Associate Dean of Research in 2021 to recognize outstanding research accomplishments by Science faculty members. Each year, the Science Research Office will award one tenure-track and two tenured faculty members based on their research accomplishments and excellence in the previous two or five years for the tenure-track and tenured faculty members respectively.
Professor Andrea Edginton, the Hallman Director of the School of Pharmacy, has been selected for one of this year’s tenure-level awards. She is a globally recognized leader in pharmacokinetic (PK) modeling, an area of study that explores how the human body processes medications. The Edginton lab specializes in designing computer-based virtual patients to test how drugs are absorbed, disrupted, metabolized and excreted from the body. Her research helps clinicians make informed decisions when deciding what dose of medication is safe in specific patient populations.
“I am thrilled to receive the ESRA and look forward to improving patient care through leveraging PK modelling and simulation techniques,” says Edginton. “This award will support the training of pharmacometricians in my lab who continue to evolve this important work.”
