Lena Friberg is Professor of Pharmacometrics at the Faculty of Pharmacy at Uppsala University, Sweden, a position she has held since 2014. Lena obtained her PhD degree in Pharmacokinetics and Drug Therapy in 2003 and spent nearly two years as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Queensland in Australia. She has published over 125 original articles and nearly 15 reviews and book chapters in the area and has an H-index over 40.
Her research is focused on advancing pharmacometric concepts in design and analysis of experimental data to facilitate translation between experimental systems and species as well as to support dosing strategies. Since 2005, a substantial part of her research has focused on antibacterial treatments, e.g. developing methods for quantitative translation of response-time profiles from preclinical (in vitro and in vivo) to patients, in addition to improving approaches to analyze clinical trial data through the integration of pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic concepts.
Lena has received the Georgio Segré prize for distinction in the field of Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics, and the Innovation award from the International Society of Pharmacometrics. She is the Deputy Editor-in-chief of CPT: Pharmacometrics & Systems Pharmacology, and on the boards of Population Approach Group Europe (PAGE), World Congress of Pharmacometrics (WCoP) and International Society of Anti-Infective Pharmacology (ISAP).
