Dr. Lindsay C. Czuba is an Assistant Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences with a background in drug transport and metabolism. She received her undergraduate degree in Biology (B.S.) from Syracuse University and a PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences from the University of Maryland, Baltimore. Her graduate work was performed under the mentorship of Dr. Peter W. Swaan and focused on understanding the structure-function of the human intestinal bile acid transporter, ASBT.

She then joined the lab of Dr. Nina Isoherranen at the University of Washington (Pharmaceutics) for her postdoctoral training. At Washington, her research focused on altered vitamin A and drug metabolism in human obesity and pregnancy.

Her research interests are understanding the regulation of bile acid signaling, transport at the gut-liver axis, and how dysregulated bile acid homeostasis contributes to the pathogenesis of human obesity and associated comorbidities.

We wish to remember and honor those who inhabited this Commonwealth before the arrival of the Europeans. Briefly occupying these lands were the Osage, Wyndott tribe, and Miami peoples. The Adena and Hopewell peoples, who are recognized by the naming of the time period in which they resided here, were here more permanently. Some of their mounds remain in the Lexington area, including at UK’s Adena Park.

In more recent years, the Cherokee occupied southeast Kentucky, the Yuchi southwest Kentucky, the Chickasaw extreme western Kentucky and the Shawnee central Kentucky including what is now the city of Lexington. The Shawnee left when colonization pushed through the Appalachian Mountains. Lower Shawnee Town ceremonial grounds are still visible in Greenup County.

We honor the first inhabitants who were here, respect their culture, and acknowledge the presence of their descendants who are here today in all walks of life including fellow pharmacists and healthcare professionals.
