Short CV

Juergen Siepmann studied pharmacy and did his Ph.D. at the Freie Universitaet Berlin, Germany. Since 2004 he is Professor of Pharmaceutical Technology at the University of Lille, France. His awards include the “APV-Prize for the outstanding doctoral thesis in Pharmaceutical Sciences from the years 1998/99”, a Marie Curie Individual Post-Doctoral Fellowship and the “2012 APV Research Award for Outstanding Achievements in the Pharmaceutical Sciences”. He was visiting scientist/postdoctoral fellow at Purdue University, the University of Paris-Sud, the University of Iowa and the University of Angers.

Prof. Siepmann’s research focuses on controlled drug delivery systems, in particular on the elucidation of the underlying mass transport phenomena, mathematical modeling and the optimization of the devices. So far, he published his work in more than 170 articles in international scientific journals, 300 poster and 130 oral presentations at national and international scientific meetings. He is editor of 3 books, theme editor of 8 special issues, inventor of 9 patents and author of 17 book chapters.

In 2010 Prof. Siepmann created the INSERM research group “Controlled Drug Delivery Systems and Biomaterials” (INSERM = French National Institute of Health and Medical Research) (currently 9 professors, 6 lecturers, 5 technical/administrative staff, 20 post-docs & PhD students and 10 master students). In 2015, Prof. Siepmann served as Editor-in-Chief of the "Journal of Drug Delivery Sciences and Technology", since 2016 he is Editor-in-Chief of the “International Journal of Pharmaceutics”. Since 2010 he serves as president of the APGI (“International Society of Drug Delivery Sciences and Technology”).


Main research interests

  • Preparation and physicochemical characterization of controlled drug delivery systems

  • Elucidation of the underlying drug release mechanisms from controlled drug delivery systems

  • Optimization of drug concentrations at the site of action in order to improve the efficacy of the therapeutical treatment and to minimize adverse effects
