Associate Professor Clinical Pharmacy – USC School of Pharmacy

Kathleen E. Rodgers, PhD, is an Associate Professor in the Titus Family Department of Clinical Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Economics & Policy in the School of Pharmacy at the University of Southern California. Throughout her career, Dr. Rodgers has conducted research into a broad array of topics including gynecological cancers, medical device safety, drug effectiveness and toxicology.

Since joining USC in 1986, she has been interested in applied research. Early in her career, she continued her doctoral research in the immunotoxicology of organophosphate pesticides. Her research interests also included the development of an immunoassay for gynecological cancers and an understanding of the process of peritoneal healing and the formation of intraperitoneal adhesions. After identification of key processes in these healing events, one focus became the identification of therapeutic interventions by which adhesions can be prevented. Further, she discovered that molecules generated by the renin angiotensin system have potential therapeutic benefit.
