My research interest is the application of PBPK modeling to conduct interspecies extrapolation for toxicology or human health risk assessment. My project is focused on using PBPK modeling to predict tissue residues and withdrawal time for veterinary drugs in food-producing animals, such as cattle, swine, sheep, goat, buffalo, and chicken.

Dongping Zeng

Visiting Scholar

Co-mentored by Dr. Jim E. Riviere

Ph.D., Veterinary Pharmacology and Toxicology, South China Agricultural University

Office: P222C Mosier Hall
Phone: 785-532-4940
Email: donytsang@ksu.edu

My research interest is in veterinary pharmacokinetics and drug residues of food-producing animals. Current research is focused on the development and application of PBPK and PK/PD models to estimate drug tissue residues and withdrawal times and to help optimize drug therapeutic regimens in food animals.
