Date:6/20/2013

The winner of the esteemed Cubist-ICAAC Award is George L. Drusano, M.D., Institute for Therapeutic Innovation of the University of Florida, for his application of pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic modeling to antiviral and antimicrobial drug development. According to his nominator, Michael Dudley, Rempex Pharmaceuticals, "Drusano and his colleagues have published groundbreaking work using pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics to simulate and then validate dosing regimens to maximize the safety and efficacy of antibiotics. The breadth and importance of his work is remarkable."

After graduating magna cum laude, ΦΒΚ from the Honors Program at Boston College, Drusano received his M.D. from the University of Maryland School of Medicine where he graduated cum laude, ΑΩΑ. He completed his medical internship and residency at the University of Maryland Hospital, where he was Chief Resident and also a Fellow in Medicine in Infectious Diseases.

Drusano, a Fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology and the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA), is an active reviewer and has served as editor of the section of pharmacology and experimental therapeutics for Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy for 10 years. Currently he is an Editor for mBio. He has authored over 290 articles.

Also an active volunteer, Drusano was a member of the Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapeutics (ICAAC) Program Committee and the IDSA Program Committee. He has served on multiple National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Review Groups and as an ad hoc member of NIAID Council on two occasions to support issues regarding emergence of bacterial resistance. He also serves as a consultant to NIAID and CDC on Biodefense issues.
