Public lecture by Professor Patrick Augustijns, appointed honorary doctor of the Faculty of Languages 2019, with the title Insights from the inside: how gut contents and physiology influence drug absorption.

Patrick Augustijns is a professor at Catholic University of Leuven in Belgium. He is one of the heads of research at the Drug Delivery and Disposition laboratory, whose research focuses on how pharmaceuticals are absorbed by the intestines. The laboratory’s areas of strength include strategies for absorption of pharmaceuticals that have poor solubility. Augustijns is the initiator and driving force within several different networks in his area of research. He is also deeply involved in (and currently chair of) the European University Consortium for Pharmaceutical Research (ULLA) and the Globalization of Pharmaceutics Education Network (GPEN). Augustijns’ close associations with many members of the Faculty of Pharmacy have contributed significantly to the faculty’s research programme.
