Research Interests

Dr. Stergachis' research focus is pharmacoepidemiology, global drugs and vaccine safety, pharmaceutical outcomes research, and public health systems research. He directed a pharmacovigilance pregnancy registry study on the safety of first trimester antimalarials conducted in three sub-Saharan African countries. He is one of very few pharmacists ever elected to the National Academy of Medicine. His research has been supported, in part, by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, USAID, the Barr Foundation, the Partnership for Quality Medical Donations, and USP. He is a Fellow of the International Society for Pharmacoepidemiology, Chair of the Expert Panel to Review Surveillance and Screening Technologies for the Quality Assurance of Medicines for United States Pharmacopeia, Chair of the Low-dose Primaquine Safety Study Group for the WorldWide Antimalarial Resistance Network and member of the Access and Product Management Advisory Committee for Medicines for Malaria Venture. He has conducted pharmacovigilance trainings and related pharmaceutical systems strengthening activities in numerous low- and middle-income countries (e.g., Namibia, Vietnam, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, China, India, Kenya, Bangladesh, Eritrea, Philippines, Uganda, and Ukraine). Through his affiliation with the Northwest Center for Public Health Practice, he also works on workforce development and research in emergency preparedness with the public health community.
