Neonatal pharmacotherapy is a field ripe with opportunity. Efficacy and toxicity is unpredictable and varies greatly for many drug classes commonly used. Weight-based dosing continues to be the standard of care as individualized drug markers are lacking.

Tamorah Lewis, MD, neonatologist and clinical pharmacologist, joins us to discuss how pharmacotherapy and individualized medicine can transform care for critically ill newborns.
