Thierry Vandamme obtained his PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences in 1994 at the catholic University of Louvain in Belgium. After its PhD thesis, he carried out two post-doctoral training courses, the first one at the University of Stanford in California (01.01.1995 - 31.12.1995) in the Laboratory of Dr. Jorge Heller (Laboratory of synthesis of biodegradable polymers) and the second one at the School of Pharmacy in London (01.01.1996 - 31.08.1996) in the research team of Professor Ruth Duncan (Laboratory of therapeutic polymers). In 1996, he became lecturer at the University Louis Pasteur of Strasbourg and was promoted Professor in Biogalenics in February 2005 on an employment “Fillon”. His research activities are undertaken within the Department of Bioorganic Chemistry (UMR7199) and the main aim of this research activities are based on the developments of new systems of delivery of drugs. His research activities and his laboratory are located in the Faculty of Pharmacy of the University of Strasbourg. He was also the Vice-Dean in charge of research in the Faculty of Pharmacy, Vice-president of the University of Strasbourg (2010-2016) and is elected in the research council of the University of Strasbourg. He is Editor-in-Chief of Pharmaceutics.
