Keeping Up with Arthur J. Atkinson, Jr., MD

October 23, 2012

Art Atkinson (is) “ happy to report that the third edition of “Principles of Clinical Pharmacology” was published last month (see attached). It has been a two-year project that has kept me busy as lead editor and contributing author and I am relieved to finally cross it off my “to-do” list. This June, I spent a marvelous two weeks as a visiting professor at the Gaslini Hospital and Institute in Genoa, Italy, the largest children’s hospital in Europe. Later this week, I head to Bethesda, Maryland to help put on a two-day workshop on “Principles of Pharmacokinetic Data Analysis, Modeling and Simulation” at the National Institutes of Health. All this keeps me quite busy but I feel blessed to be able to still be professionally active.” Along the way, our outstanding classmate was appointed Corporate Vice President for Clinical Development and Medical Affairs at the Upjohn Company, has been President of the American Board of Clinical Pharmacology, President of the American Society for Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics, and is a Master of the American College of Physicians. In their spare time, Art and Mary Jo, both avid sailors, have logged in over 10,000 nautical miles on his seafaring yacht, The Paradigm, that was featured in the Spring/Summer 2009 issue of Deerfield Magazine.
