Dr. HDR Vincent Jannin is Research Director - Pharmaceuticals at Gattefossé where he is responsible for the development and characterization of new lipid-based excipients, particularly in the field of solubility and bioavailability enhancement for poorly water-soluble drugs. Previously he held the position of Pharmaceutical Formulation Laboratory Manager (1999-2001) and Pharmaceutical Project Director (2002-2014) at Gattefossé. He is also a lecturer at CPE Lyon (Lyon University) since 2003 where he teaches formulation sciences. In addition, he serves as Vice-President of the International Society for Drug Delivery Sciences and Technology (APGI) since 2010.
Vincent earned his Pharm.D. and Ph.D. from the University of Bourgogne (France). His doctoral work focused on pharmaceutical technologies such as tabletting and hot-melt coating with lipid-based excipients. He received his HDR (Habilitation to Supervise Research) from the University of Lyon for his work centering on the characterization of physical-chemical properties of lipid-based systems, notably of acylglycerols and polyoxylglycerides and their behavior in gastro-intestinal fluids. Habilitation is the highest academic achievement possible in France - earned for superior independent scholarly accomplishments qualifying the holder to supervise doctoral candidates. He has published 41 publications in peer-reviewed journals (h-index=19), 4 patent families, 3 book chapters, 53 meeting abstracts, and given more than 40 lectures as invited speaker on Lipid-based Systems.
