Prominent highly-cited scientist visits KAU

Vladimir P. Torchilin, professor and chairman of the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at Northeastern's Bouvé College of Health Sciences, has recently visited King Abdulaziz University (KAU) in Jeddah, where he was received by Professor Adnan Zahed, KAU Vice President for Graduate Studies and Scientific Research.

 The meeting was attended by Dr Abdulrahman L. Al-Malki, Dean of the Faculty of Sciences, Dr Fahad Al-Abbasi, Associate Professor Department of Biochemistry, and Dr Ahmed Al-Abd, of the Faculty of Pharmacy.

 The visit was part of a programme aimed at attracting international globally acclaimed and prolific academicians and researchers to the university in the drive to make it a world class hub for research and learning.

 Professor Torchilin has received countless honors for his innovative research in such areas as drug delivery systems, drug targeting, cancer immunology, and imaging agents. He holds more than 45 patents, has received upwards of $5.5 million in grants, has published more than 300 papers, and sat on the editorial boards of fourteen highly respected scientific journals.

Prof Torchilin is scheduled to give lectures during the visit to share his expertise with the KAU faculty and students.

 The visit, according to Professor Zahed, was in tune with KAU's policy of seeking to provide a high-quality education and taking advantage of the capacity and expertise of local and foreign universities and scientists.
