Self-introduction
Biopharmaceutics and cell biology are my majors. I'm trying to establish preventive approach against drugs-induced lung injury as the adverse effects, and finally develop the specific method to suppress just the adverse drug reactions, but not the main pharmacological effect. I'm in charge of "Industrial Pharmaceutics" as a lecture using own career experiences in Pharmaceutical industry.
