About Research

Current research interests include understanding the role of age-based factors on host immune responses to pulmonary infections that are prominent in the infant and childhood populations. At the graduate level, Dr. Empey coordinates Clinical Pharmacy Environments, a unique, hands-on experience designed to introduce pharmacy-based clinical research to graduate-level students. Within the PharmD curriculum, she teaches pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, immunology, and co-coordinates the Seminar Series designed to teach Pharmacy students how to prepare and present professional talks.
