Hughey Honored by IPEC
Justin Hughey, graduate student of Dr. James McGinity, has been awarded a graduate student scholarship by the International Pharmaceutical Excipients Council of the Americas Foundation. Formal presentation of the $1,000 award was made at the fall awards ceremony of the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists in Washington, D.C.
The award recognizes Hughey's work on important and significant contributions of excipients to the development of safer, more efficient pharmaceuticals. He is currently investigating novel formulation and processing techniques to improve the bioavailability of poorly water-soluble drug substances.
The Foundation's Scientific Advisory Committee selected Hughey for the award.
