The European Federation for Pharmaceutical Sciences (EUFEPS) has awarded its first ever Distinguished Service Award to professor Arto Urtti, Professor in the Centre for Drug Research. Dr. Urtti was awarded for providing exceptional and valuable professional service to EUFEPS, and for demonstrating initiative and dedication in these roles. For 10 years, Professor Urtti served as editor-in-chief of the European Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences, the official journal of EUFEPS. Professor Urtti received this distinguished honor at the 5th World Conference on Drug Absorption, Transport and Delivery (WCDATD): Responding to Challenging Situations. Professor Urtti currently serves as Professor in CDR, where his interests include nanotechnology and drug delivery research, especially related difficult targets like eye and tumors. Nanotechnology and drug delivery research is an active area within CDR. Within this field; we develop innovative technologies in: ocular drug delivery and ADME, nanocarriers/biomaterials and drug delivery, complex organotypic cell models, and transdermal drug delivery.

Paul Bromann received his Ph.D. in Neuroscience in 1999 (Northwestern University, Evanston, IL, USA) and completed postdoctoral fellowships at Washington University Medical School (Saint Louis, MO, USA) and Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute (San Diego, CA, USA). Dr. Bromann has extensive experience in protein engineering and also has several years of project management experience in academia as well as in industry. He served as Senior Scientist and Project Manager at NexBio, Inc./Ansun BioPharma (San Diego, CA, USA), where he led and managed a multi-disciplinary group project to develop a recombinant protein therapeutic, Sepcidin, to treat viral and inflammatory diseases. He also served as Research Scientist/Project Manager at VTT, Technical Research Centre of Finland. At VTT, Dr. Bromann internally managed a large EU project called Metaexplore, and led efforts to develop state-of-the-art metagenomics techniques for discovering and commercially exploiting novel enzymes for industrial applications. As part of the CDR’s commitment to developing novel biological and natural product drug discovery and pharmaceutical nanotechnology tools, Dr. Bromann serves as Research Manager for the CDR. He provides support to the Director in the development and management activities of the CDR including: promoting and coordinating collaboration with domestic and international industry, academia, and government agencies; and, the facilitation of patenting and technology transfer of CDR innovations.
