Anna Takácsi-Nagy Pharm.D. is a licensed pharmacist and senior lecturer in the Institute of Pharmaceutical Technology and Biopharmacy at the University of Pécs, Hungary. After earning the PhD degree in analitical chemistry and working as a pharmacist in a public pharmacy, she continued her scientific work with pharmaceutical formulations and focuses on semi solids. She now aims to advance her knowledge on physical-chemical examinations and engaged in conducting stability tests on extemporaneous preparations. Anna is responsible for leading the semi solid research group having undergrade and PhD students, who have been recognized by numerous prizes and won many competitions. Between two experiments, she teaches pharmacy students trying to give them the essence and beauty of pharmaceutical technology which is present in the everyday life: from the multi-vitamin pill you try to remember to take every day to the researchers in NASA trying to elongate the expiry life of medications available for astronauts on their missions.
When she is not in the pharmatechnology lab or not teaching the students at the institute or glued to her computer, she enjoys traveling with her family, reading crime story books and struggles to create beadworks and learn to speak French. Anna is a pride mother of a young daughter.
