Florence Siepmann received her Ph.D. degree in pharmaceutical sciences from the Freie Universität Berlin, Berlin, Germany, in 2004. Florence Siepmann is Associate Professor of pharmaceutical technology at the University of Lille, Lille, France. Her research focuses on controlled drug delivery systems, in particular on the elucidation of the underlying mass transport phenomena and the optimization of the devices (e.g., coated pellets, matrix tablets, biodegradable microparticles, and lipid implants). Siepmann has long experience in mathematical modeling and in silico simulations to speed up product development. Since 2010, she is heading the mathematical modeling team of the INSERM research unit Controlled Drug Delivery Systems and Biomaterials. So far, she published her work in more than 80 articles in peer‐reviewed international scientific journals, 130 poster presentations, and 25 oral presentations at national and international scientific meetings. She is author of 10 book chapters and inventor of 1 patent. Siepmann is Member of the Editorial Boards of BioMed Research International and Advances in Pharmaceutics. She is also a Member of the Executive Board of the International Society of Drug Delivery Sciences and Technology (APGI) and is actively involved in the organization of various national and international scientific meetings in the field of pharmaceutics.
