Clinical Pharmacology Scientific Lead, U.S. FDA

“I joined AAPS as a graduate student. My research was based on microdialysis, and I immediately joined the microdialysis focus group, which at the time was the only official one of its kind in the world. As a young scientist and AAPS member, I was able to connect with leading scientists from all over the world in my field of research and learn from them.”

Kevin Litwiler, Ph.D.

“I’ve been a member of AAPS for more than a decade. I have never outgrown my membership, as I thought I might earlier in my career. Instead, I’ve drawn on different AAPS resources and opportunities as my knowledge, experience and needs have evolved. I’ve told people for many years now that I found a home with AAPS; I expect that AAPS will continue to be an important part of my professional life.”
