Dr Shola Olafuyi
Assistant Professor in Pharmacology University of Nottingham
I am an academic with research expertise in physiologically based pharmacokinetics (PBPK).
I completed my BPharm degree in Pharmacy from University of Lagos, Nigeria and proceeded to gain clinical pharmacy experience at the Chevron Nigeria Limited Hospital, Lagos and Reddington Multispecialist Hospital, Lagos for about 3 years. I completed my MSc. clinical pharmacy degree at the University of Strathclyde, then went on to pursue my PhD degree at the Aston University, UK.
My PhD research involved the development of physiologically based pharmacokinetic models for antimalarial drugs used in special populations.
I joined University of Nottingham in 2019 as an Assistant Professor in Pharmacology and teach pharmacokinetics at different academic levels.
I aim to highlight, through my teaching and research, the impact of ethnic variabilities on the pharmacokinetics of drugs.
Dr Jenny Koenig
Assistant Professor in Pharmacology, Therapeutics and Toxicology University of Nottingham
After a BSc majoring in Pharmacology and Chemistry at the University of Sydney, a PhD at the University of Cambridge and a short spell in industry, I moved to the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Cambridge where I worked on intracellular trafficking of G protein coupled receptors and developed a mathematical modelling approach for which I was awarded the first IUPHAR Receptor Mechanisms Research Award in 1998.
From 2004-20, I combined teaching pharmacology in the Cambridge Graduate Entry Medicine Course with science education and communication, in particular developing the pedagogy surrounding the intersection of maths and science and have published on curriculum and pedagogical approaches for maths in bioscience.
I am interested in diversity in the widest sense having re-founded Cambridge AWiSE in 2004 and worked with disabled students and students with mental health difficulties.
I joined the University of Nottingham in April 2020 and teach pharmacology for the graduate entry medicine course and toxicology and pharmacology for the medical physiology and therapeutics BSc.
