Research Bio
Charles Venuto, PharmD, is a clinical pharmacologist with experience in pharmacokinetic and population pharmacokinetic modeling. His main research interests focus on characterizing the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of approved and investigational drugs and identifying influential sources of variability in drug behavior. These could include: pharmacogenetics, drug-drug interactions, and disease progression factors. Dr. Venuto has collaborated with the New York State Center of Excellence Translational Pharmacology Research Core, the AIDS Clinical Trials Group, and CHDI (formerly the Cure Huntington's Disease Initiative) in various clinical pharmacology modeling and simulation projects.
