After receiving his PharmD from the University of Connecticut, Dayne Laskey finished an ASHP-accredited pharmacy practice residency at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta. He went on to complete a clinical toxicology fellowship with the Georgia Poison Center and has served as preceptor to pharmacy students, medical residents, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners on their toxicology rotations. In 2014, Dr. Laskey founded the USJ School of Pharmacy Medicine Garden, located in West Hartford’s Elizabeth Park, which features a variety of medicinal plants from cultures around the world, many of which are sources of modern pharmaceutical products. In addition to his role at USJ’s School of Pharmacy, Dr. Laskey currently maintains an active practice in the Hartford Hospital Emergency Department.
In keeping with Paracelsus’ expression, “The dose maketh the poison,” Dr. Laskey’s teaching philosophy focuses on rationalizing clinical scenarios pharmacologically and instilling a keen toxicology interest in each of his students. Dr. Laskey’s areas of academic interest include antidote delivery, toxicokinetics, and emergency medicine. He maintains active memberships in the American Academy of Clinical Toxicology (AACT), and the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP). Outside the academic environment, he enjoys hiking, tinkering with electronics, boating, and playing music.
