      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.
