Gerhard Levy Lecture Series

Gerhard Levy, pioneering researcher and renowned scholar

UB Emeritus Distinguished Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Gerhard Levy, was a pioneer and leading contributor in the areas of pharmacokinetics and clinical pharmacokinetics.

Levy is considered the originator of the biopharmaceutics field and the “father” of pharmacodynamics.

When Dr. Gerhard Levy retired in 2000 after four decades of service, the UB Pharmaceutical Sciences department established the Lectureship, as well as a named seminar room, in recognition of the significant contributions Levy made in his fields of study and to honor a beloved friend and esteemed colleague who deftly balanced his love of teaching with robust research.
