Dedicated Issue
JPharmSci ®’s Editorial Team is pleased to announce that the September 2015 issue of the journal will be dedicated in honor of Gordon L. Amidon who is currently the Charles R. Walgreen Jr. Professor of Pharmacy and a Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI. The Guest Editors for the Gordon L. Amidon Dedicated Issue will be Maureen Donovan (University of Iowa), Peter Langguth (University of Mainz), James Polli (University of Maryland), Ikumi Tamia (Kanazawa University), Balvinder Vig (Bristol-Myers Squibb) and Lawrence Yu (US Food and Drug Administration).

This dedicated issue will include original scientific papers (Research Articles, Notes and Rapid Communications), Perspectives, Reviews, Minireviews, Lessons Learned, and Commentaries that highlight Professor Amidon’s major contributions to our understanding of the molecular mechanisms of drug absorption across biological barriers (e.g. drug solubility, dissolution and release; drug permeability across absorptive barriers; and transporter-mediated and prodrug enhanced oral drug delivery) and to the field of biopharmaceutic, particularly as it relates to regulatory science (e.g. Biopharmaceutics Classification System). A full, freely available editorial about the Special Issue is available here.
