Dr. Hanes received his PharmD from the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) in 1994 and completed a PGY-1 residency at UIC followed by a 2-year Critical Care Research Fellowship at the University of Tennessee (1995-1997). While practicing in various critical care settings, Dr. Hanes was active in research and scholarship in the area critical care pharmacotherapy and pharmacokinetics. More recently, he has focused is interests in scholarship of teaching and learning.

Curriculum Vitae


  • Pathophysiology I
  • Pathophysiology II


Dr. Hanes’ research interests include the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic evaluation of antimicrobials in the intensive care unit setting. Specific areas of interest are clinical outcomes associated with inadequate empiric antibiotic therapy and the utilization of biomarkers as surrogate markers of pharmacodynamic response and clinical outcomes.
