New faculty member joins the School of Pharmacy.
Gregory B. Tallman, PharmD, MS, BCPS
Masters of Clinical Research | Oregon Health & Science University, 2017
Doctor of Pharmacy | Drake University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, 2013
Dr. Tallman's clinical practice focuses on infectious diseases pharmacotherapy, pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics, and antimicrobial stewardship, with the goal of achieving optimal antimicrobial therapy for all patients. He is particularly interested in respiratory tract infections, urinary tract infections, the use of antimicrobial agents to prevent infection, and how pharmacists can help improve antimicrobial prescribing patterns for these indications. Greg’s research aims to support and advance his clinical practice by drawing on his experiences and training to conduct studies focused on the following three areas of interest:
- Applying epidemiologic principles to translate real-world data from administrative databases and electronic health records into meaningful clinical information that can guide patient care and antimicrobial stewardship interventions
- Enhancing approaches to quantifying antibiotic exposure to inform research efforts on antibiotic resistance and benchmarking of antimicrobial stewardship programs
- Utilizing biostatistical and modeling techniques to better define the relationship between antibiotic exposure and successful clinical outcomes as well as development of antibiotic resistance.
Outside the Classroom
Originally from the Midwest, Dr. Tallman spent 8 years in Iowa earning his degree and completing two years of pharmacy residency before moving to Oregon to complete an academic research fellowship. After fellowship, he joined the faculty at Pacific University in July 2018. When he is not working, Greg spends time with his wife and dog exploring all that the Pacific Northwest has to offer, from hiking and camping to food carts, trivia, coffee, beer, and wine. While he loves living in Oregon, Greg can’t entirely escape his Midwestern roots, as evidenced by a fondness for corny jokes, long “O” sounds, and the yearly cycle of pre-season excitement and post-season blues that comes with being a Minnesota Vikings fan.
