About Sarah Kim

Sarah Kim, Ph.D., is a Research Assistant Professor at the University of Florida’s Center for Pharmacometrics and Systems Pharmacology in Lake Nona (Orlando), FL. Her desire is to be at the crossroads of mathematics and pharmacology. She has been trained to deliver complex mathematical concepts meaningfully through a variety of teaching and research experiences, which people who have different backgrounds could understand. She graduated summa cum laude with the President’s honor with a Bachelor’s degree in 2008, and completed her Master’s degree in 2010 both in Applied Mathematics from Hanyang University, South Korea. She earned her doctorate in Biomathematics at Florida State University in 2015.

Research Profile

Dr. Kim’s current research focuses on:

Mathematical modeling and simulations informing experimental designs to examine combinations of anti-M. tuberculosis agents to identify optimal regimens,

Developing a disease progression model-based clinical trial simulation tool designed to optimize clinical trial enrichment and design of studies to investigate efficacy of potential therapies for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy,

Population pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic modeling and simulations to evaluate the impact of potential bio-in-equivalence on pharmacodynamics, and

Systems pharmacology modeling to improve drug safety, for which she received the David Goldstein Trainee Award from ASCPT in 2017 and two Presidential Trainee Awards from ASCPT in 2017 & 2018.
