Saskia de Wildt full professor

Dr. de Wildt combines clinical work with research on personalized clinical pharmacology with a focus on special populations, i.e. children and intensive care patients. Her research aims to understand the impact and interplay of factors such as age, critical illness and genetics on drug disposition and effect, using ex vivo and in vivo human studies. For this aim several innovative study methods have been used, including micro dosing, transporter proteomics and population PK modelling. She is responsible for the Dutch Pediatric Formulary, thereby contributing to optimal on- and off-label drug use in children. She is active in the board of national and international societies and Networks, including the Dutch Society of Clinical Pharmacology (ASCPT), European Society of Developmental Perinatal Pediatric Pharmacology (ESDPPP), Task-force in Europe for Drug Development for the Young (TEDDY) and Paediatric Clinical Research Infrastructure Network (PedCRIN). These activities, in combination with her own clinical work and research, she is building towards the goal of effective and safe therapy for each patient.
