Professor Yogeshvar N. Kalia is an associate professor at the University of Geneva.
After a B.Sc. (Hons.) degree in Chemistry, he obtained a Ph.D. in physical chemistry (speciality: development of enzyme electrodes) at the Imperial College of Science, Technology & Medicine, UK. The main focus of the research was the development of enzyme electrodes and an investigation into the mechanisms of electron transfer at the enzyme-electrode interface. This was followed by a three year postdoctoral fellowship in the Dept. of Biochemistry at the University of Cambridge (speciality: protein structure determination); two-dimensional NMR techniques were used to determine the structure of a protein subunit-binding domain. Since 1994, he has worked in biopharmaceutics (speciality: transdermal drug delivery), first at the University of California - San Francisco and since 1997 at the University of Geneva.
He has published 167 papers with 94 as corresponding author – (i) Harzing’s Publish or Perish, (v. 7.29.3156.7695), h-index 61 and 12762 total citations, (ii) Scopus, h-index 52 and 8911 citations – 18 book chapters and ~210 communications at national / international conferences and I am a co-inventor on 7 patents. He serves on the Editorial Boards of the European Journal of Pharmaceutics and Biopharmaceutics, Expert Opinion on Drug Delivery and Pharmaceutics, International Journal of Pharmaceutics, Pharmaceutics, Sci, and Scientia Pharmaceutica.
