美国普渡大学传授、Journal of Controlled Release主编

Professor Kinam Park received his Ph.D. degree in pharmaceutics from University of Wisconsin in 1983.  After postdoctoral training in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the same university, he joined the faculty of College of Pharmacy, Purdue University in 1986. He became Showalter Distinguished Professor of Biomedical Engineering in 2006. His research focuses on oral delivery, drug-device combination products, and long-term microparticle formulations. He is currently the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Controlled Release. He is the founder of Akina, Inc. specializing in polymers for drug delivery.



Everybody wants to have a successful career and successful life. But what is success? One philosophical definition is to achieve the goals of each individual. Then, what can be the goals of a scientist? One way of finding out the answer is to peek into the minds of great scientists, such as Johannes Kepler, Galileo Galilei, Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, Albert Einstein, and Nikola Tesla. All of them had the obsessive curiosity for the problems at hand. They, as all scientists, made many mistakes, but what makes them different is that they made the most mistakes in the shortest period of time. One important tenet of all of them is that they had the right problems to solve.


In the drug delivery field, scientists choose research topics that pique their heartfelt interest. We all have many successes, mistakes, and failures, and they collectively provided a platform to think creatively, sometimes against prevailing dogmas. The future of drug delivery technologies is promising and ours to build. The future of the drug delivery field, and science as a whole, depends on the young scientists. It is critical to nurture them to embrace a paradox and non-conformist views. This takes concerted efforts of all of us to understand the current situation, recognize difficulties, and respect different opinions. To be a good scientist, it is necessary to be an enlightened person first.
