The following link provides a quick reference to our division of Molecular Pharmaceutics and Drug Delivery presentations that will be given during the Annual Meeting of the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists in San Diego, CA on November 13-15, 2017.
Bill Williams is the Johnson & Johnson Centennial Chair and the Division Head, Division of Molecular Pharmaceutics and Drug Delivery at the College of Pharmacy, University of Texas at Austin. He earned a B.S. in Biology from Texas A&M University, a B.S. in Pharmacy from the University of Texas at Austin and Doctor of Philosophy in Pharmaceutics in 1986 from the University of Texas at Austin. Dr. Williams worked 9 years in the pharmaceutical industry in the United States and France before returning to the University of Texas at Austin in 1995. Dr Williams was elected a Fellow of the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists in 2006 and a Fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering in 2008. Dr. Williams is a member of the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) since its inception, as well as other professional societies including the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy. He is the co-founder of several pharmaceutical companies. Dr. Williams’ research interests include development of novel drug delivery systems for oral, pulmonary, nasal, injectable, buccal and topical applications, development of novel particle engineering technologies for low molecular weight drugs, peptides and proteins, and analytical technologies to characterize actives, excipients and polymers. He has published over 400 peer-reviewed research articles, reviews, abstracts and book chapters, and co-edited two books in the fields of pharmaceutical technology and drug delivery, including Formulating Poorly Water Soluble Drugs (aapspress and Springer). He is an inventor on over 35 patents and patent applications, and was awarded Inventor of the Year by the University of Texas at Austin in 2017. Dr. Williams served as Editor-in-Chief of the research journal Drug Development and Industrial Pharmacy from 2000 to 2014, and is the Editor-in-Chief of AAPS PharmSciTech since 2014. He is on the Editorial Advisory Board of Journal of Drug Delivery Science and Technology, and he serves as a reviewer for numerous other journals. ORCID: http://orcid.org/0000-0003-4993-6427
