Holly Mansell Assistant Professor

E3132 Health Sciences


Dr. Mansell joined the College of Pharmacy and Nutrition in February 2013. She maintains a practice site at the Saskatchewan Transplant Program in Saskatoon as a clinical pharmacist, working with an interdisciplinary team. She teaches undergraduate pharmacy students in the area of pharmacotherapeutics. 


Dr. Mansell’s research areas of interest include solid organ transplantation, adverse effects of immunosuppression, medication adherence, patient education and interprofessional education. She is currently leading a project to improve education before kidney transplantation, and investigate the impact on post-transplant adherence.
