Daniel Gonzalez, Pharm.D., Ph.D., has been promoted to associate professor in the Division of Pharmacotherapy and Experimental Therapeutics at the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy, effective June 1.
“I routinely reflect on how lucky I am to be a faculty member at the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy, and I am honored by this distinction. I am grateful to all of my current and former trainees, my mentors and collaborators, and my family for all of their support. Through my research, I hope to continue to generate new knowledge that leads to the safe and effective use of drugs in children.”
Gonzalez holds an adjunct appointment within the Department of Pediatrics in the UNC School of Medicine. He joined the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy in 2014 after completing a postdoctoral fellowship through the UNC-Duke Collaborative Clinical Pharmacology T32 Postdoctoral Training Program. Gonzalez received his Pharm.D. and Ph.D. from the University of Florida College of Pharmacy in 2008 and 2012, respectively. Gonzalez is a licensed pharmacist in North Carolina and Florida.
Gonzalez’s experiences have afforded a highly collaborative and multidisciplinary research program focused on advancing pediatric public health by promoting the safe, effective, and individualized use of drugs in children. His research interests include pediatric clinical pharmacology and the application of mathematical modeling and simulation techniques to characterize the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of drugs, guide drug dosage selection, and improve drug safety in children. Gonzalez’s research program is funded by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), and he has published more than 65 peer-reviewed publications and more than 35 abstracts. He has served as the major advisor for four Ph.D. students, nine postdoctoral fellows, and one professional degree student.
