Graduate students excel at ISAP Annual Meeting

Tobias Heinrichs and Amelia Deitchman, Pharm.D., graduate students in the department of pharmaceutics, were recognized as top young investigators for their presentations at the International Society of Anti-Infective Pharmacology, or ISAP, Annual Meeting in Vienna, Austria. The pair were among 16 young scientists selected to give an oral presentation at the meeting. A panel of judges reviewed the presentations and selected the top five honorees, including Heinrichs and Deitchman, and picked Heinrichs’ presentation as the overall winner. His research investigated the lung tissue concentrations of moxifloxacin in patients with multidrug-resistant pulmonary tuberculosis using an innovative technique of microdialysis. For Deitchman, this is the second consecutive year that her research was selected as a top honoree by ISAP. She presented research focused on the potential impact of atypical nonlinear plasma protein binding on clinical pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic breakpoints and on clinical pharmacokinetics.
