Congratulations to Professor Abdul Basit who has been named as the recipient of the Harrison Memorial Medal for 2022

The Harrison Memorial Medal is awarded every two years, in memory of the distinguished pharmaceutical chemist Colonel EF Harrison. It is presented to an individual who has made an outstanding contribution in advancing pharmaceutical science.

Professor Basit is internationally recognised for leading in the fields of oral drug delivery, microbiome medicines, three-dimensional printing of pharmaceuticals and digital health. He has also founded three start-up companies.

His research has led to a series of transformative drug delivery systems, translated into the design of new technologies and improved therapies, many of which have been commercialised and launched worldwide including a new treatment for inflammatory bowel disease. To date, more than a million patients have benefited from inventions created and developed in the Basit Research Group.

The COLOTAN team is honoured that COLOTAN team member (Prof. Basit also supervises Alessia Favaron, ESR9 in the COLOTAN project) has won this prestigious award.
