Research in the ICCM is interdisciplinary and focused on developing novel approaches to extrapolate drug, chemical and/or nanomaterial behavior from in vitro to in vivo systems and across species, with particular emphasis on domestic animals. Collaboration would also be possible with the co-located USDA supported Food Animal Residue Avoidance and Depletion (FARAD) program as well as the co-located Nanotechnology Innovation Center of Kansas State (NICKS). The incumbents to these positions would develop and apply modern computational and pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic modeling solutions to problems in comparative pharmacology, drug delivery, antimicrobial chemotherapy, nanomaterial toxicology and biodistribution, as well as chemical food safety. Expertise is particularly sought in mixed-effect modeling from both statistical and pharmacokinetic perspectives, as well as physiological-based pharmacokinetic modeling (PBPK) interests.
