Lennart Lindfors's Biography

Lennart Lindfors, Principle Scientist/Adjunct Professor, AstraZeneca/University of Gothenberg

Lennart Lindfors is currently a Principal Scientist at Pharmaceutical Development at AstraZeneca and an adjunct Professor at the Department of Chemistry at Göteborg University. In 1988 he finished his undergraduate studies in Chemical Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology, Göteborg, after which he started his PhD studies at AstraHässle AB. Although he was employed by Chalmers University of Technology, the research was conducted at the company within the department of Drug Delivery Research. His dissertation was in 1993 with the thesis title “Diffusion and Interaction in Gels and Solutions”. Thereafter he got married and changed his name from Lennart Johansson to Lennart Lindfors (since his wife refused to being Mrs. Johansson!) and went on a post doc to University of California in San Francisco. There he studied swelling kinetics of chemically cross-linked gels together with Professor Ronald Siegel. In 1994 he was finally employed at AstraHässle AB. Since then he has been working within what has now become AstraZeneca R&D Mölndal on gastrointestinal absorption, oral vaccines, and more recently, on molecular simulations, drug crystallization and nanoparticle systems of poorly soluble drugs.

In the presentation the preparation of crystalline as well as amorphous nanosuspensions will be described as well as the characterization of such systems. The latter will focus on stabilizer adsorption, Ostwald ripening and the dissolution rate of drug nanoparticles.
