Research Interests
Our research group is primarily involved with the mathematical modeling of static and time-varying, linear and non-linear systems applied to pharmacological and biological cascades, mechanisms, and responses. Specifically, we are studying the delayed onset of action of antidepressants, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and selective norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs). We use microdialysis techniques and multiple modeling software packages (Matlab®, SAAM-II®, Stella®, WinNonLin®, Scientist®, C/C++, BASIC, FORTRAN).

Dr. Jim Uchizono earned his bachelor of science in chemistry and biology from University of California Irvine in 1985. He later attended University of California San Francisco where he received his doctor of pharmacy in 1990 and his doctor of philosophy in 2001. Dr. Uchizono interned and worked at Genetech, Inc in 1992. He joined the Pacific Pharmacy family in 2000.
