NIH Geriatric Pharmacotherapy Center of Excellence
Joseph T. Hanlon, ParmD, MS

 


Professor of Medicine Joe Hanlon PharmD MS directs the NIH Geriatric Pharmacotherapy Center of Excellence, which was launched with funding from an NIH K07. Dr. Hanlon is also a key contributor to the renowned "Beers List," which is used by researchers, clinicians, and the federal government (e.g. CMS, NQF, HEDIS). The Center's goals are two-fold: 1) to conduct systematic evaluations of drug use and medications recommended for older people; 2) to support a fellowship training program in geriatric pharmacotherapy. The Pharmacotherapy Center-supported fellows have established a history of research excellence. A list of selected publications by recent fellows is available here.
