The Power List 2017

Davy Guillarme

Senior Lecturer in the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Geneva/University of Lausanne, Geneva, Switzerland.

My highest motivation is to help develop PhD and postdoc students in the field of analytical pharmaceutical chemistry. I’m also very pleased when I can present some interesting data obtained by my students at international conferences.

Luckiest break
I started my career with the development of analytical methods for small molecules. In 2012, we decided to evaluate the possibilities of chromatographic approaches (including LC, 2D-LC and LC-MS) for the analysis of protein biopharmaceuticals. Looking at the pharmaceutical market in 2017, I think we took a good decision at the right time, since a significant amount of R&D activity in the pharmaceutical industry is dedicated today to the analysis of large proteins.

Why pharmaceutical science?
Analytical techniques are widely used in the pharmaceutical industry, so there is always a need to develop some new analytical methods both for small molecules and protein biopharmaceuticals. In addition, when developing some new tools/methods for pharmaceutical analysis, I feel that I play a role in improving the safety of drugs.

The Magnificent Tens

The Magnificent Tens
After 2016’s celebration of women in analytical science, we return to the Top 100 for 2017.
But there’s a twist. This summer, we asked you to nominate scientists in ten categories – from the stars of separation science, to omics explorers, to the mentors training the next generation.
