Dr. Brocks has published over 100 peer-reviewed manuscripts related to pharmacokinetics, and has numerous published abstracts. He is on or has served with the editorial boards of the Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, Biopharmaceutics and Drug Disposition, and the Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. With respect to his current Research Interests, Dr Brocks in interested in the pharmacokinetics and dynamics of drugs. Many of his works have focused on stereoselectivity in the pharmacokinetics of chiral drugs that are administered as equal proportions of two enantiomers (the racemate). These drugs include nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, anticholinergic drugs and antimalarial drugs. Most of his recent research activity has focused on the effects that elements of the cardiometabolic syndrome, hyperlipidemia and obesity, can have on the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of drugs.
