Allen I. White Lecture
August 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The WSU College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences is very excited to welcome Kathy Giacomini, PhD to speak at the 2023 Allen I. White Lecture.
Kathy Giacomini, dean and professor in the School of Pharmacy at the University of California, San Francisco, is a leader in the field of membrane transporters with a focus on genetic polymorphisms. Her contributions include cloning, characterizing and discovering the endogenous role of the human transporters, OCT1 (SLC22A1) and CNT2 (SLC28A2). She and her team published functional genomic studies of missense variants in over 15 transporters in the Solute Carrier Superfamily (SLC). Recently, they de-orphaned SLC22A15 and SLC22A24, discovering that the transporters have unique ligand specificities and important biological and pharmacological roles. With others, she co-founded the International Transporter Consortium, which has published impactful manuscripts informing clinical pharmacology and regulatory policy. She is the Co-Principal Investigator of the UCSF-Stanford Center of Excellence in Regulatory Sciences and Innovation and Past President of the Pharmacogenomics Research Network. She has received numerous awards and is an elected member of the National Academy of Medicine.
A reception in the Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Sciences Building (PBS) Lobby will immediately follow the lecture.
