Professor Yogeshvar N. Kalia is a full 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 178 papers with 103 as corresponding author – (i) Scopus, h-index 54 and 9968 citations, (ii) Google Scholar, h-index 62 and 14162 total citations – 20 book chapters and ~215 communications at national / international conferences and is 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, International Journal of Pharmaceutics, Pharmaceutics, Sci, and Scientia Pharmaceutica
