Arik Dahan is an Assistant Professor of Pharmaceutics and Biopharmaceutics at the Department of Clinical Pharmacology and the School of Pharmacy, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Beer-Sheva, Israel. He is also an Adjunct Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the College of Pharmacy, University of Michigan, USA. Dr Dahan received his Ph.D. (2007) from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. From 2007 until 2009 he was a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the University of Michigan College of Pharmacy with Professor Gordon Amidon. DrDahan\\s research interest is the integration of up-to-date molecular and cellular mechanistic investigations of drug disposition in the context of the human body, in order to enable successful drug delivery and therapy. In implementing this molecular biopharmaceutical approach to ADME research, He has published over 40 top-notch Journal papers, and contributed chapters to 4 books.
Dr Dahan is seeking to enable mechanistic-based successful solutions to drug delivery, especially (but not only) oral, in challenging scenarios e.g. low-solubility, low-permeability, efflux transport, extensive metabolism, poor site targeting, various pathophysiological conditions (e.g. obesity, inflammatory bowel disease), and pediatrics patient care.
