Dr. Brian Alldredge is Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Professor of Clinical Pharmacy in the School of Pharmacy. He is also Clinical Professor of Neurology in the School of Medicine, and a member of the UCSF Epilepsy Center. Dr. Alldredge's clinical practice and research interests focus on epilepsy, pharmacogenetics and patient safety. He is an editor of Applied Therapeutics: The Clinical Use of Drugs - a pharmacotherapy text book used widely in health professions education - and he is an Associate Editor for AHRQ Web M&M: Morbidity & Mortality Rounds on the Web (http://www.webmm.ahrq.gov/). He participates on invited review groups for the National Institutes of Neurological Disorders & Stroke, and he serves as a review for journals in pharmacy, neurology and medicine.
Dr. Alldredge's research focuses on the treatment of epilepsy with antiepileptic drugs, pharmacogenetics, status epilepticus, and medication safety in institutions and the community. He is pharmacogenomics core leader for the Epilepsy Phenome / Genome Project - a multicenter consortium of academic medical centers that is exploring the link between genetics and epilepsy phenotypes (including pharmacoresistance). His work is currently supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health and private foundations.
