Dr Shyamal Das is a Senior Lecturer in Pharmaceutical Science in the University of Otago (UOO). He obtained his PhD and pursued a Research Fellowship at Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences for five years when he developed a research track record in powders for inhalation. His unique experience in solid surface characterization to optimize respiratory delivery of powders is internationally recognized. The dearth of research in New Zealand on powders for inhalation stimulated him to initiate research on respiratory drug delivery. He has been successful in receiving grants and fellowships of over NZD1.25M as principal applicant including the prestigious nationally competitive grant from Health Research Council of New Zealand. Dr Das has published, mostly as a primary or senior author, 2 book chapters, 53 peer-reviewed articles and 60 other conference abstracts. Dr Das is the only external reviewer from Australasia for the Drug Delivery to the Lung Conference, the top conference in respiratory delivery annually held in Edinburgh. He is also on the editorial board of five international pharmaceutical journals, reviewers of top pharmaceutical journals, external examiners of PhD and Masters Theses examiners and a consultant to Pharmaceutical industries. This year Dr Das won Otago University’s Students Association’s top five teacher award for excellence in teaching.
