Two Honorary Professors at IF
We now have two Honorary Professors here at Department of Pharmacy: Professor Shane Desselle and Professor Jeffrey Lazarus.
Professor Anna Birna Almarsdóttir presents the two Honorary Professors: “Professor Shane Desselle’s expertise and current work fits extremely well with the research and teaching profile of the SCP group. He will therefore be an ideal partner for researchers at IF i.e. regarding strengthening publishing of results, teaching, thesis supervision, and grant applications.
“Professor Jeffrey Lazarus’ expertise and current work is a great match with with the research profile of SCP group and the WHO Collaborating Centre for research and training in the patient perspective on medicines use (WHOCC). He will therefore be an ideal partner for researchers at IF i.e. regarding strengthening the WHOCC, publishing of results, teaching, thesis supervision, and grant applications.”
