Veng-Pedersen Inducted As Fellow In Pharmaceutical Society

Peter Veng-Pedersen, Ph.D., professor of pharmaceutics in the University of Iowa College of Pharmacy, was inducted as a Fellow in the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) at the organization's annual meeting Nov. 7 in Baltimore, Md.

A faculty member at the UI since 1984, Veng-Pedersen was noted for his seminal contributions in the area of pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic data analysis, which are essential elements in developing rational drug dosage regimens. Veng-Pedersen also was noted for his recent work on developing optimal treatment regimens using erythropoietin in the management of neonatal anemia, which have led to an increased understanding of the mechanism of action of this important agent.

AAPS is a professional, scientific society of more than 12,000 members employed in academia, industry, government and other research institutes worldwide. Founded in 1986, AAPS provides a dynamic international forum for the exchange of knowledge among scientists to enhance their contributions to public health. Election to status as a Fellow in the AAPS requires evidence of sustained contributions to the pharmaceutical sciences and a critical evaluation by a select committee of scientists.
