Charlotte is a trainee paediatrician at SGUL, who has a long term career goal to be a paediatric clinical pharmacologist. She will become involved in a range of GRiP projects, and her appointment as NAPPA Fellow means she will be more closely involved in the development of population pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and novel drug estimation methodologies, which is an integral part of the GRiP project. As GRiP scientist, Charlotte will focus on developing and considering novel and innovative methodologies in neonatal and paediatric pharmacokinetic analysis.
