Murphy125w.jpeg Dr. Christine Murphy received her BS and MA degrees in Chemistry from the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia.  She completed both medical school and her Emergency Medicine residency at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia.  She rounded out her post-graduate work with completion of a Medical Toxicology fellowship in Charlotte, North Carolina.  Currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Emergency of Medicine and Division of Clinical Toxicology at Virginia Commonwealth University, she routinely teaches residents from all specialties, pharmacy students, and pharmacy residents.  She specifically enjoys the field of Pediatric Toxicology.  Research interests currently include new antidotes and recreational drugs of abuse, specifically “bath salts” products.
 St-Onge125.jpg Dr. Maude St-Onge is a fellow in clinical pharmacology and toxicology at the University of Toronto (Ontario & Manitoba Poison Centre). She is double board certified in emergency medicine and critical care medicine. She works as an intensivist for the Department of Critical Care Medicine at the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. She is also completing a PhD in medical sciences at the University of Toronto. Her thesis concerns the development of evidence-based clinical practice guidelines in acute care toxicology, more specifically for the treatment of calcium channel blocker poisoning.

Dr. J. Wesley Watkins is currently a third year resident in Emergency Medicine at Washington University in St Louis.  He received his undergraduate degree from Duke University and attended medical school at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.
