AAPS Announces 2009 Research Award Winners

Abstract:
At the Opening Session of the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists' (AAPS) 2009 Annual Meeting and Exposition, AAPS President Patrick P. DeLuca, Ph.D. presented the following ground-breaking researchers with awards commemorating their contributions to the pharmaceutical sciences:

Dr. Rainer Hoffman Product through Science Award - Sponsored by Lohmann Therapie-Systeme AG
Eugene R. Cooper, Ph.D. has spent more than a decade at Procter and Gamble conducting research on the delivery of chemicals and drugs into and across the skin. He developed an understanding of the pathways for skin transport, a unique (and safe) enhancer system for rendering skin more permeable, a model for predicting maximum skin transport based on molecular properties, and he established the thermodynamic principles for guaranteeing maximum delivery of drugs across the skin. In 1994, Dr. Cooper was asked to lead the research and development for a new venture, NanoSystems, to develop and commercialize the nanotechnology, which is currently employed in a number of important drug products.

New Investigator Grant Award in Pharmaceutics and Pharmaceutical Technologies - Sponsored by Pfizer
Yoon Yeo, Ph.D. is Assistant Professor of Industrial and Physical Pharmacy at Purdue University. Her research focuses on the development of novel dosage forms and biocompatible materials for delivery of macromolecular therapeutics. Her group develops polymeric nanoparticles for intracellular drug/gene delivery, inhalable microparticles for local therapy of pulmonary diseases, and in-situ crosslinkable hydrogels for tissue engineering applications. She has published 30 peer-reviewed articles, four book chapters, and six U.S. patents (pending and awarded).
