    Dr. Qi (Tony) Zhou receives the 2017 ISAM Young Investigator Award


    ISAM is pleased to announce Dr. Qi (Tony) Zhou was awarded the 2017 ISAM Young Investigator Award at the 2017 ISAM conference in Santa Fe. Tony is an Assistant Professor at the College of Pharmacy, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana. Prior to his work at Purdue, he obtained his PhD at the Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Monash University of Australia. He followed his PhD with postdoctoral training at the Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Sydney, under Dr. Kim Chan’s supervision.

    Tony has become a recognized expert in the field of DPI formulations and pulmonary drug delivery as evidenced by numerous research articles and expert reviews. His publication in developing new inhaled formulations (J Pharm Sci 2016, 105: 2, 650–656) was selected by the Editor of Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences as “the Most Original and Most Significant Scientific Finding.” One of his review articles on inhaled antibiotics (Adv Drug Del Rev 2015, 85, 83-99,) is highlighted as the top 1% Highly Cited Paper in Pharmacology & Toxicology as of May/June 2016 by Essential Science Indicators of Thomson Reuters. He is also an Editorial Board Member of the Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences and a Guest Editor of two issues of Current Pharmaceutical Design.

    Tony’s significant contributions to the field of inhalation formulation and pulmonary drug delivery include:

    • Particle engineering to improve the delivery efficiency of powder aerosol formulations
    • Computational modeling to improve inhaler design
    • PK and PD in animal lung infection models

    We look forward to Tony’s continued contributions to the field of aerosol medicine and pulmonary drug delivery
