Research Interests:

Our team mainly focuses on the management of antibiotics among patients, especially pediatric population. We employ population pharmacokinetics (PPK) to assist Therapeutic Drug Monitoring (TDM). Up to now, we have established PPK models of vancomycin, voriconazole and tacrolimus in different groups and applied in clinical practice. Moreover, evidence-based studies are ongoing with regard to rare diseases and orphan drugs.
