ACCP "Excellence in Achievement"
The ACCP "Excellence in Achievement" Program serves to acknowledge ACCP Members whose engagement with ACCP events/committees and contributions to the organization are deserving of recognition.
ACCP is pleased to recognize Jomy M. George, PharmD, BCPS, Director, Clinical Pharmacokinetics Research Laboratory and Postdoctoral Pharmacokinetics Research Fellowship at the National Inst of Health (NIH). The Clinical Pharmacokinetics Research Laboratory supports clinical pharmacology research across many institutes of the NIH and provides core services related to Phase 1/2 pharmacokinetic research including the conduct of drug-drug interaction studies, development and validation of novel bioanalytical methods, data analytics including pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic correlation with validated biomarkers and clinical expert consultation of pharmacokinetic aspects of individualized patient drug therapy.
Dr. George joined ACCP in 2016 and has been actively engaged with the society ever since. She has been a Faculty Speaker at the ACCP Annual Meeting in 2017 and 2018, is a current member of the Education Committee and was on the Honors & Awards Committee from 2016 to 2018. Dr. George also provided her expertise as an Abstract Reviewer in 2019 and 2020 and has submitted manuscripts to the The Journal of Clinical Pharmacology.
Dr. George attained her Doctor of Pharmacy from the Philadelphia Coll of Pharmacy, completed a Pharmacy Practice Residency at the Virginia Commonwealth Univ and an Infectious Diseases Clinical Research Fellowship at the Univ of Illinois at Chicago.
Dr. George's primary research interests include antiretroviral pharmacology and clinical pharmacokinetics for which she serves as Principal Investigator on several Phase 1 drug-drug interaction trials. She also maintains a clinical practice as a HIV clinical pharmacist on a multi-disciplinary team caring for people with HIV and cancer. Dr. George is actively engaged in clinical pharmacology and infectious diseases research communities including serving as a Scientific Panel Member on the Dept of Health and Human Service (DHHS) Guidelines for the Use of Antiretrovirals in Adults and Adolescents with HIV, as well as a Clinical Pharmacology Panel member on the CDC/NIH/IDSA Guidelines for the Prevention and Treatment of Opportunistic Infections in Adults and Adolescents with HIV.
Dr. George graciously shared her thoughts on what ACCP membership means to her:
"Being a Member of ACCP has afforded me so many opportunities to work with not only some of the greatest minds in clinical pharmacology, but it has given me the chance to meet some wonderful colleagues and friends. What I appreciate the most about ACCP is that it is an organization that embodies a culture of diversity and inclusion. The ability to engage multiple key stakeholders from academia, government, industry and private sector- all the while providing an environment where professionals from all stages of their career can be involved- is truly amazing! While the membership base has grown over the years- ACCP still manages to have that “small hometown feel” about it. This would not be possible if it weren’t for the wonderful ACCP Staff and Members who are always open to listen to their membership base. I am very thankful for the opportunities I have had as a Member and I look forward to my continued involvement with ACCP."
Congratulations, Dr. George, on being recognized for your outstanding achievements and contributions to ACCP!
