Klaus Romero, MD, MS, FCP
Adjunct Professor of Clinical Pharmacy
Titus Department of Clinical Pharmacy
MD, Xavierian University School of Medicine
Postgraduate training, Columbian National University
In July, 2018, Klaus Romero joined the faculty as Adjunct Professor for the USC School of Pharmacy at the Titus Family Department of Clinical Pharmacy.
Dr. Romero received his M.D. degree from the Xavierian University School of Medicine, with postgraduate training in clinical pharmacology and epidemiology at the Columbian National University.
He has developed models to predict the efficacy and safety of medications used to treat polycystic kidney disease, Alzheimer's disease, multiple sclerosis and tuberculosis. These models have received FDA acceptance as fit for purpose models that have significantly improved the ability to determine go/no go decisions from phase 2 to phase 3 trials. He has authored over 40 peer-reviewed publications and served as a co-investigator on a number of NIH, FDA, and Foundation grants.
Dr. Romero will be involved in leading the development of a sophisticated data management and analytics core for the School, which will integrate research data within USC and external collaborators, to then develop longitudinal models that incorporate disease dynamics with exposure-response relationships. This will in turn provide unique training opportunities for talented scientists that are interested in pursuing careers in the field of quantitative medicine and model-informed drug discovery and development.
