Arwyn gained his PhD in protein biochemistry and crystallography at Birkbeck College, University of London. Then he undertook postdoctoral positions investigating endocytosis at the University of Liverpool and Harvard University, Boston USA. In 2000 he was awarded a European Molecular Biology Organization fellowship to work at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), Heidelberg Germany, and continued at the EMBL when he was awarded an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Scholarship. He was appointed as Lecturer at the Cardiff School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at Cardiff University in 2002 where he is now a Professor in Membrane Traffic and Drug Delivery. In addition to scientific research, Arwyn also has a very wide interest in public engagement with science and has organised a number of large exhibitions focusing on e.g. stem cell biology, tissue engineering, pollination and neuroscience. Through a BBC scholarship, he gained a Diploma in Journalism qualification from Bangor University in 2001 and for a number of years he has been a regular face and voice in the Welsh media discussing scientific issues.
Projects in his lab fall under cancer cell biology, endocytosis and drug delivery, concentrating on linking endocytosis research to enhance our capacity to deliver therapeutics to defined regions of cells. He actively collaborates with a number of national and international groups including his recent strong involvement with COMPACT (http://www.compact-research.org/) - an academic/industrial consortium collaborating on the Optimisation of Macromolecular Pharmaceutical Access to Cellular Targets. Arwyn has published widely within the fields of endocytosis and drug delivery especially within the remit of early endosomal traffic and the utilization of Cell Penetrating Peptides as drug delivery vectors. He currently sits on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Controlled Release and Membranes.
Hiroshi Maeda is a world renowned expert in macromolecular therapeutics. He created the world first polymeric-conjugate drug, SMANCS, approved for treatment of hepatoma in Japan. Consequently, he discovered the concept of EPR effect of macromolecular-drugs, ubiquitous mechanism for solid tumor selective targeting of polymeric drugs. He received MS, University of California, Devis, Fulbright student, Ph.D., M.D., Tohoku University. He published more than 450 papers in reputed journals. He was awarded Lifetime-Achievement-Award at Royal-Pharmaceutical-Society, Princess-Takamatsu-Award in Cancer Research, Tomizo-Yoshida-Award, highest award of Japan-Cancer-Assoc., and also selected as most cited influential scientist in pharmacology by Thomson Reuters 2014, and H-index of 89.
