Warren Rose
Drug Policy & Pharmacotherapy Specialist

Warren Rose (PharmD) is a Visante Sr. Consultant specializing in the exploration of challenging and clinically relevant infectious diseases.

Dr. Rose is also Assistant Professor of Pharmacy at the University of Wisconsin School of Pharmacy in Madison, WI. His research interests focus on antimicrobial pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics.

Recently he has been exploring toxin gene expression and production in community-associated MRSA strains and the evaluation of antimicrobial effects on Staphylococcus aureus pathogenesis. This translational research involves in vitro pharmacodynamics modeling of human simulated antibiotic exposures to determine ideal doses and regimens that reduce organism virulence. The work is carried into a clinical setting at the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics through the evaluation of patient immune factors that predict patient outcome and response to antimicrobials.

In addition to his own research, he teaches courses in pharmacotherapy and mentors students in laboratory-directed infectious diseases studies. He is preceptor for the Infectious Disease elective for the Acute Care Rotation for pharmacy students wherein pharmacotherapy is reviewed in patients by the Infectious Disease multi-disciplinary consult team.

Warren’s interest in research and teaching was nurtured while in his pharmacy practice residency at Rush University Medical Center, and later during a fellowship with the Anti-Infective Research Laboratory of the Eugene Applebaum College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences at Wayne State University. This fellowship program, in collaboration with Detroit Receiving Hospital, investigates various pharmacodynamic infection models and patient studies to fully characterize the impact of dosing frequency and antimicrobial combinations on bacterial killing and resistance development. As a part of his fellowship training, Dr. Rose specifically focused on the impact of gene regulation on antibiotic resistance.

Due to the timely and critical nature of his research investigations, Dr. Rose is regularly asked to present his findings at the Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, the Infectious Disease Society of America, the American College of Clinical Pharmacy, the European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases and the Society of Critical Care Medicine. In the professional and academic literature, he is credited with more than 60 published papers and abstracts. He maintains memberships in the American Society of Microbiology, Society of Infectious Disease Pharmacists, American College of Clinical Pharmacy, American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, and the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy. In 2008 he received the Astellas Research Award given by the Society of Infectious Disease Pharmacists. To assist with his research, he received two ICAAC Fellow Travel Awards.

Warren Rose received a Doctor of Pharmacy degree from Butler University College of Pharmacy in Indianapolis, IN, completed a post-graduate residency at the Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, IL and an Infectious Diseases Fellowship at the Anti-Infective Research Laboratory at Wayne State University in Detroit, MI. He is licensed to practice pharmacy in Illinois and Wisconsin.
