Public lecture by Professor Elizabeth de Lange, appointed honorary doctor of the Faculty of Pharmacy, with the title The Predictive Pharmacology Research Strategy: The Miracle of Smart Data.

Elizabeth de Lange is Professor of Predictive Pharmacology at Leiden University in the Netherlands. Professor de Lange is one of the world’s leading researchers in interspecies extrapolation and prediction of human drug effects by development of translational mathematical models on the basis of preclinical data. Her research has mainly focused on the central nervous system (CNS), which is protected by the blood–brain barrier. With her team she successfully developed a physiologically-based pharmacokinetic model that is able to predict drug distribution into and within the human CNS. Professor de Lange was elected a Fellow of the American Association of Pharmaceutical Sciences in 2013. She is the author of over 100 published scientific articles and over 10 book chapters, has over 130 invited lectures, and has organised over 80 international conferences and symposia. There have been strong links between Professor de Lange and Uppsala University since the early 1990s, especially to the translational pharmacokinetics-pharmacodynamics (Transitional PKPD) group at the Department of Pharmaceutical Biosciences.
