Nan Wu, PhD student, Division of pharmaceutics and translation therapeutics, College of Pharmacy, University of Iowa. Nan received her BS degree in Pharmaceutics from China Pharmaceutical University in 2017 and MS degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences from the University of Pittsburgh in 2019 with focus on computer-aided drug discovery. Then she joined Dr. Guohua An’s group in May 2019 to pursue her Ph.D degree in the University of Iowa with a focus on pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics. Her current research and efforts mainly concentrate on establishing target-mediated drug disposition (TMDD) models of large molecules (such as Erythropoietin, EPO), as well as small molecules (such as soluble epoxide hydrolase inhibitors). Furthermore, she is heavily involved in developing whole-body physiologically-based pharmacokinetics (PBPK) and quantitative systems pharmacology (QSP) models for the glycemic control, facilitating drug development of antiglycemic agents. She has been handling several projects utilizing mathematical modeling and computational methods to facilitate drug development in either pre-clinical or clinical phase. She is motivated, willing to learn new skills and a good team player.
