The research interest of Wayne (Nick) T. Nicholson, M.D., Pharm.D., resides in a better understanding and application of clinical pharmacology. Pharmacology research involves studying drug action and disposition in both healthy individuals and patients with disease. Many factors may alter how a drug acts in an individual.
The primary objective of clinical pharmacology research is to improve drug therapy and safety. By participating as an investigator in new drug studies with industry, Dr. Nicholson's goal is to bring new drugs to practice. Additionally, mechanistic studies give insight to pharmacologic differences that exist in populations. Knowing these differences may provide greater individualization of future drug therapy.
