    Dr. Romero received her Ph.D. in 1999 from the School of Medicine, USC, in biochemistry and molecular biology with emphasis in computational chemistry. She is a lecturer in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences and her focus is to teach and help coordinate the pharmaceutics courses for students in levels I and II. Dr. Romero?s lecture topics have included: Pharmaceutics I- functional group chemistry, acids and bases, buffer solutions, kinetics and stability of pharmaceuticals, and pharmaceutical formulations (solutions and tablets); Pharmaceutics II - aerosols, intestinal drug transporters (influx and efflux), ointments, creams and lotions, and transdermal delivery; Pharmaceutics IV - liposomes, nanoparticles/microparticles, antisense, and gene therapy.

    Dr. Romero is also interested, and has been active, in helping to convert the basic science Pharm.D. curriculum from the 'traditional' lecture only format to a more learner-centered, problem-based approach.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
