EVA MARIA DEL AMO PáEZ

Senior Researcher

My main interest is in intravitreal pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of biologicals for the treatment of wet Age-related macular degeneration.

Docent in the field of pharmacokinetic modeling and simulations from 1.09.2021

I received my Ph.D. from the University of Helsinki with my dissertation “Ocular and Systemic Pharmacokinetic Models for Drug Discovery and Development” in 2015, and continued my research at the University of Eastern Finland, Kuopio in the ocular drug delivery research group under prof. Urtti’s supervision. In 2018, I moved to Manchester where I started a Marie-Curie fellowship on Pharmacokinetic-Pharmacodynamic models for patients with neovascular age-macular degeneration with anti-VEGF treatment, at the Centre for Applied Pharmacokinetic Research at the University of Manchester under the mentorship of prof. Leon Aarons and the collaboration with prof. Paul Bishop.
My research interests include the application of modeling and simulation techniques to characterize the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of ocular drugs, guide dosage selection and formulation design and improve drug delivery in patients with retinal diseases. Moreover, I am interested in drug binding to ocular melanin pigment to sustain therapy action. Apart from pharmacometrics, I am trained in Quantitative Structure Property Relationship (QSPR) and chemoinformatics.
My computational models to describe and predict intravitreal pharmacokinetic in rabbits and humans have been followed and utilized in industry and academia. I have published over 30 publications including peer reviewed scientific articles and book chapters that have received >1800 citations (h-index 17).
