School of Pharmacy faculty members Sandra L. Kane, Emily Wade, Levent Kirisci and Ted Rice were awarded this year's American College of Clinical Pharmacy's Amgen Biotechnology Research Award, along with Mitchell Fink, chief and professor of critical care medicine.
This award was based on their research proposal "Clinical and Economic Outcomes of Epoeitin Alfa." The research team is studying the impact of the drug's use in reducing the need for blood transfusions and preventing anemia in intensive care unit (ICU) patients.
The study will use electronic data to determine whether the drug improves the recovery time from an ICU stay and other illnesses.
