The Power List 2017 – Masters of the Bench

Claus-Michael Lehr

Head, Department of Drug Delivery, Helmholtz-Institute for Pharmaceutical Research Saarland, Helmholtz Center for Infection Research (HZI), Saarland University

“I am passionate about the convergence of scientific challenges required to safely deliver drugs across biological barriers. Drug delivery is like a triathlon you must be good in more than one discipline – biology, chemistry, physics, medicine and engineering – to reach your goal. When we started our new Helmholtz Institute a few years back, I realized that there are many unexplored needs and opportunities for advanced drug delivery research in the context of infectious diseases.

“I would like to see drug delivery considered as a subject of strategic research rather than a mere development task of ‘formulating’ a given active molecule for (pre)clinical testing.”
