On occasion of his honorary doctorate, Patrick Couvreur, gives a public lecture on the state of the art of nanomedicine

Professor Patrick Couvreur (1950, Belgium) is a pharmacist, full professor at the Paris-Sud University and chair of ‘Innovations Technologiques’ at the prestigious Collège de France. His contributions to the field of drug delivery, nanomedicines and drug targeting are highly recognized around the world. Patrick Couvreur performed pioneering work and first demonstrated in the late seventies that nanoparticles may be used as intracellular carriers for compounds (like biotechnological drugs) which do not diffuse spontaneously into cells. Through these observations he invented the field of ‘nanomedicines’.

Shaping up the future in his field, professor Couvreur’s pioneering real interdisciplinary work is carried on with clear vision, communicative enthusiasm and leadership, and is a source of inspiration for young scientists.
