B. Joseph Guglielmo, PharmD, is a pharmacist, clinical scientist, teacher, and international expert in the evidence-based use of antimicrobials to treat infections. He has served as dean of the UCSF School of Pharmacy since April 2013, where he holds the Troy C. Daniels Distinguished Professorship in Pharmaceutical Sciences. Guglielmo is also a professor in the Department of Clinical Pharmacy, which he chaired from 2006 until he was named dean, and serves as the associate director of pharmaceutical services in the UCSF Medical Center. Under his direction, the department committed to being the best in bridging gaps in health care, especially for the underserved.

He is widely known as an advocate for therapeutics-related research, from basic science to health policy research. As chair, Guglielmo oversaw a 40 percent increase in the Department of Clinical Pharmacy’s faculty research funding from 2006 to 2012, including grants from the National Institutes of Health. He created the Department of Clinical Pharmacy-run Medication Outcomes Center in 2007 to research and improve medication use and management in the UCSF Medical Center. In the 1980s he established the UCSF Medical Center Antimicrobial Stewardship Program to study and improve antimicrobial use.

He believes that the most important clinical research is shaped through the researcher’s own clinical experiences. He practices in the UCSF Medical Center, where he is an infectious diseases pharmacist supporting the UCSF Medical Center Antimicrobial Stewardship Program and serving on the Infectious Diseases Consult Service team. Beyond the hospital, he developed clinical pharmacy services for UCSF's HIV/AIDS program, specifically for the HIV Women's Program and the Men of Color Program.

Guglielmo is the author of more than 110 peer-reviewed papers, the majority related to anti-infective agents. He is the long-term editor of Applied Therapeutics: The Clinical Use of Drugs and the Handbook of Applied Therapeutics. The recipient of many teaching awards, he lectures worldwide on the safe, effective use of antimicrobials and other medications. Guglielmo earned a PharmD degree from the University of Southern California in 1978 and completed a pharmacy practice residency at UCSF in 1979, before joining the UCSF School of Pharmacy faculty.
