NSU College of Pharmacy Practice Faculty Presents Original Infectious Disease Research at Leading International Conferences

Timothy P. Gauthier, Pharm.D.

Timothy P. Gauthier, Pharm.D.

In May 2014, Timothy P. Gauthier, Pharm.D., assistant professor of pharmacy practice, NSU College of Pharmacy (COP), presented the original research project Colistin-Associated Nephrotoxicity in Critically Ill Patients and Simulated Colistimethate Sodium and Colistin Levels at the European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases’ (ESCMID) 24th European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ECCMID) in Barcelona, Spain.  This invited platform presentation described novel findings regarding the use of last-line antibiotic colistin, a drug more commonly used in practice today, as antibiotic misuse leads to antimicrobial resistance and moves the world closer to a post-antibiotic era. William R. Wolowich, Pharm.D., assistant professor of pharmacy practice, NSU COP, significantly contributed to this research.

Additionally, in September 2013, Gauthier presented the research project Free Antibiotic and Vaccination Programs in Community Pharmacies and Associations with Race/Ethnicity and Socioeconomic Status at the American Society of Microbiology’s (ASM) 53rd Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy (ICAAC) in Denver, Colorado. This invited platform presentation described a previously unrecognized initiative related to antimicrobial use in the community, finding multiple opportunities to enhance appropriate drug use in this setting. NSU COP students David Harriman and Jenny Pham contributed to this research.

Both research projects represent inter-professional collaborations with co-investigators from other institutions including University of Miami, University of Memphis, University of Tennessee and Jackson Memorial Hospital. For more information on these meetings and topics, see www.ECCMID.org, www.ICAAC.org or contact Gauthier at TG517@nova.edu.  You are also invited to follow him on Twitter and/or Instagram at @IDstewardship.
