About Eric F Egelund

After completing his Pharm.D. at the University of Florida College of Pharmacy, Dr. Egelund enrolled in the Ph.D. program at the University of Florida. Dr. Egelund completed his graduate studies in the Department of Pharmacotherapy and Translational Research under the mentorship of Dr. Charles Peloquin, director of the Infectious Disease Pharmacokinetics Laboratory (IDPL) in Gainesville. Currently Dr. Egelund is a Clinical Assistant Professor at the College of Pharmacy’s Jacksonville campus. In addition to this role Dr. Egelund works part-time at Walgreens and volunteers at HIV clinics when time permits.

Research Profile

Dr. Egelund’s primary research interest is the pharmacokinetics of infectious disease agents, specifically those used for the treatment of tuberculosis, non-tuberculosis mycobacteria (NTM), and HIV. Additionally, Dr. Egelund has an interest in interprofessional education, in particular, utilizing simulations to prevent medication errors.​
