Link to CV
Dr. Patrick Callery is a professor of pharmaceutical sciences in the Department of Basic Pharmaceutical Sciences in the West Virginia University School of Pharmacy and a member of the Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center. He earned his B.S degree in Pharmacy from the University of Utah and Ph.D. in pharmaceutical chemistry from the University of California San Francisco. He completed postdoctoral study in medicinal chemistry at the University of Maryland Baltimore where he was appointed as an assistant professor. Dr. Callery came to WVU in 1997 as professor and chair of the department of basic pharmaceutical sciences.
Dr. Callery’s eclectic research activity has contributed to multiauthored scientific publications and drug discovery patents. Recent research accomplishments are in the areas of the forensic toxicology of smoked drugs, reactive metabolites of anticancer drugs, novel drug metabolism reactions, prodrugs of natural products, and new classes of monoamine oxidase and histone demethylase inhibitors with therapeutic potential.
