Dr. Woodhead has led efforts to construct DILIsym sub-models and designing experimental studies related to bile acid homeostasis, transport and toxicity. His work has been published in peer-reviewed journals in the area of optimizing acetaminophen overdose treatment using the DILIsym software model. Dr. Woodhead also utilizes DILIsym in proprietary projects to help evaluate DILI risk for sponsor compounds in clinical development.
Dr. Woodhead received his Ph.D. in chemical engineering from North Carolina State University in 2011 under the tutelage of Dr. Carol K. Hall, where he modeled the self-assembly of block copolymer nanoparticles in the presence of solutes. He has a bachelor of engineering in chemical engineering and history from Vanderbilt University. Dr. Woodhead was the initial Secretary of the International Society of Pharmacometrics (ISoP) Special Interest Group on Quantitative Systems Pharmacology, and is currently an active member of the ISoP.
