Research Summary

Dr. Momper’s research focuses on the application of quantitative pharmacology approaches to optimize the development and clinical use of drugs. Current research directions include evaluation of potential therapies for HIV infection in infants and pregnant women and the use of model-based methods to support scientific decision making in drug development. Dr. Momper directs the Translational Pharmacology and Bioanalysis Laboratory concentrated on novel mass spectrometry-based analytical methods, in vitro ADME assays, and pre-clinical and clinical pharmacokinetic studies.
