Gordon Amidon Will Edit New ACS Journal, Molecular Pharmaceutics


The American Chemical Society announced this week that it will introduce its 32nd journal, Molecular Pharmaceutics, early in 2004. Gordon L. Amidon, who is Charles R. Walgreen Jr. Professor of Pharmacy and professor of pharmaceutical sciences at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, will serve as editor of the new bimonthly.

Amidon says the journal will concentrate on "the rapidly advancing molecular and mechanistic research in the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical fields. The journal will have a distinct molecular and mechanistic focus emphasizing the chemistry of drug delivery." Possible subjects include drug and delivery system properties, drug transport and metabolism processes, and enzyme and transporter targets for drug delivery and targeting.

John P. Ochs, director of new product development for ACS's Publications Division, says Amidon "has worked broadly in the chemical and chemical biological sciences in drug delivery and has an extensive research background in molecular aspects of pharmaceutics and biopharmaceutics."

Amidon earned a Ph.D. in pharmaceutical chemistry in 1971 from the University of Michigan. He was president of the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists in 1998 and is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He has served on editorial boards of numerous pharmaceutical journals. Amidon is chairman of drug delivery company PORT Systems and chairman and chief scientific officer of pharmaceutical product development firm TSRL.
