Dr. Irena Loryan is researcher in the translational pharmacokinetics-pharmacodynamics (tPKPD) group in the Department of Pharmaceutical Biosciences, Uppsala University, Sweden. She received her M.D. in 2001 and Ph.D. in pharmacology and biochemistry in 2007 from Yerevan State Medical University, Armenia. She then worked as a post-doctoral fellow at the Division of Pharmacogenetics at the Department of Pharmacology and Physiology, Karolinska Institutet (Prof. Magnus Ingelman-Sundberg Lab). Since 2011, she worked as a post-doctoral fellow at the Department of Pharmaceutical Biosciences, Uppsala University (Prof. Margareta Hammarlund-Udenaes Lab) in collaboration with Janssen Pharmaceutica, Beerse, Belgium.
