Goldman Receives RO1 Grant from NIH
Jennifer Goldman, MD, Director of the Antimicrobial Stewardship Program and the Drug Safety Service in the Division of Infectious Diseases and Division of Clinical Pharmacology, Toxicology, and Therapeutic Innovation at Children's Mercy Kansas City, has been awarded a five-year, $1,364,567 R01 grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences.
Dr. Goldman’s “Trimethoprim: an overlooked contributor of trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole idiosyncratic adverse drug reactions” study will define mechanisms associated with trimethoprim induced adverse reactions, the drug component which has been overlooked and understudied as a likely contributor to idiosyncratic adverse drug reactions. This information is critical for the future development of tools that can predict those at greatest risk and thereby enhance safe prescribing of this critical antibiotic.
