ApconiX is pleased to announce that Dr Guy Healing has been appointed to an Honorary Professorship in the School of Pharmacy at the University of East Anglia (UEA), Norwich, UK.

Guy first became involved with the UEA when he worked for AstraZeneca.  One of the University’s PhD projects was co-sponsored by AstraZeneca and Guy was the external supervisor for the PhD student, whose project involved the development of an ocular toxicity model.
