Research Summary

Dr. Momper’s research is focused on mechanistically understanding alterations in drug disposition and response in special populations. Current research directions include the application of novel clinical pharmacology tools, such as physiologically based pharmacokinetic modeling, to support scientific decision making during pediatric drug development. In addition, Dr. Momper directs the Drug Metabolism and Pharmacokinetics (DMPK) research core lab which provides screening tools for in vitro ADME and in vivo pharmacokinetics.
