Swati Nagar is a Professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at Temple University School of Pharmacy. She obtained her Ph.D. in Pharmaceutics at the University of Minnesota in 2003. She completed a postdoctoral fellowship in Pharmacology at Fox Chase Cancer Center in 2005. Swati joined Temple University School of Pharmacy, Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences in 2005 as Assistant Professor, and was promoted to the rank of Associate Professor with tenure in 2011. She teaches Pharm D and graduate pharmacokinetics. Her lab has a long-standing interest in understanding the disposition of conjugated metabolites, specifically the pharmacokinetics of metabolites with respect to their formation and transport. Further, in collaboration with Dr. Ken Korzekwa, she is developing methods to better understand complex kinetics of time-dependent inhibition. Another key collaborative area of research with the Korzekwa lab is developing models to predict intracellular concentrations in the presence of drug transporters.
Swati has co-authored 41 peer-reviewed research and review articles, and she co-edited a book titled ‘Enzyme Kinetics in Drug Metabolism: Fundamentals and Applications’ published in 2014 (Springer/Humana Press). Swati is a past Chair of the Delaware Valley Drug Metabolism Discussion Group, past faculty advisor of the AAPS/Temple University student chapter, outgoing Chair of the AAPS PPDM Drug Metabolism Focus Group, incoming PPDM Vice-Chair, Vice-Chair of the 2017 Gordon Research Conference on Drug Metabolism, a member of the steering committee of the International Transporter Consortium, and a member of several professional organizations such as AAAS, ASPET, AAPS and ISSX. She currently serves on the editorial board of Drug Metabolism and Disposition.
