New Chemistry lecturer joins Medway
New Lecturer in Chemistry and Drug Delivery joins the Medway School of Pharmacy
Medway School of Pharmacy has appointed an additional lecturer to its team who brings further expertise to the Chemistry and Drug Delivery group.
Vladimir Gubala joins the School as a Lecturer in Chemistry and Drug Delivery having worked previously at Dublin City University as a senior research fellow at the Biomedical Diagnostics Institute (BDI) since 2007. Prior to this he was a post-doctoral researcher at University of Florida (Gainesville, USA). Vladimir obtained a PhD in Chemistry in 2006 from University of Puerto Rico where he was awarded an NSF-EPSCoR graduate fellowship. He graduated with an MSc and BSc in Chemistry from The Slovak Technical University, Bratislava in 2001. Vladimir’s research interests are in overlapping areas of pharmaceutical science and biomedical diagnostics. The main objective of his research is to develop novel theranostic probes that can simultaneously deliver diagnostic and therapeutic functions, thus enabling detection and treatment of diseases in a single procedure. Vladimir brings a research grant to the School from the FP7 IRSES scheme. He remains associated with BDI as an adjunct faculty member, where he is supervising postgraduate students under the Research Frontiers Award he received in 2011 from Science Foundation of Ireland.
