The Faculty of Pharmacy to inaugurate seven new professors


From fragile peptides to 3D-printed drugs. From optimised drug dosages to more effective drug use. Tuesday 16 November, the new professors of the Faculty of Pharmacy will give lectures directly from the frontline of pharmaceutical research before the Inauguration of Professors 2021.

In November, the new professors of Uppsala University will be inaugurated. At the Faculty of Pharmacy, seven researchers have been promoted or recruited as professors since 2019. Tuesday 16 November, they will present their research as part of the inaugural lectures in Uppsala University Hall, IV.

“That our relatively small faculty is about to inaugurate seven new professors is of course very positive. They all conduct research in very interesting disciplines, and I am really looking forward to Tuesday's lectures, which I warmly recommend to everyone with an interest in science” states Mathias Hallberg, Dean at the Faculty of Pharmacy.

The Faculty of Pharmacy inaugural lectures begin at 09.15 and last until 11.30. Sofia Kälvemark Sporrong, Professor of Social pharmacy, gives her lecture Blodiglar och 3D-skrivare - olika perspektiv på läkemedel i samhället (Blood lice and 3D printers - different perspectives on drugs in society) at the Inauguration of Professors on Friday 19 November in the Uppsala University main auditorium.
