Dr. Madison Ricco is a 2022 PharmD graduate from our Skaggs School of Pharmacy and current Post-Doctoral Academic Fellow. After graduating in 2022, she spent a year doing full-time basic science research on alternative dosing pathways (i.e. oral) of traditional intravenous chemotherapy in Dr. Tom Anchordoquy’s lab. She is passionate about the involvement of clinical pharmacists in traditional basic science laboratory projects given the pharmacist's training as drug experts and focus on patient care to guide these preclinical projects towards successful implementation into clinic.
