Prof Geoffrey Lee
have been in quite a few places and travelled around a lot. Science
certainly has offered me that, but the rest of life is more
important than any career. 'Travelling broadens the mind',
but only if one travels with eyes open. I think most people
don't do this, and it takes an unusual person to see and appreciate
the world as it really is. Isn't life strange ? 'Fate is odd'
wrote PG Wodehouse. Anyway, I suppose that the following places
where I have been are relevant for this homepage:
Pharmacy, London University, 1975, then after the pre-reg year in Worthing, Sussex (hospital & industry) a Ph.D. in Pharmaceutics, Supervisor: Dr. Th F Tadros, London University, 1980.
Off to California ! My life ! Post-Doctoral Research Fellow, Prof. J, Swarbrick, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, 1980-1982. What a time.
Driving my car from LA to the East Coast all the way across the US. Desert (wonderful Arizona!), mountains, flats, Texas (dreadful place!), New Orleans with vampires. up the coast to Chapel Hill (very nice memories of this place under the Carolina blue sky). Visiting Instructor, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, 1982-1983.
Germany for the first time and landed very luckily in the beautiful
town of Regensburg. The BRD was in many ways quite a different place
then, as I saw from my viewpoint as an inquisitive, observant
Ausländer. von Humboldt Fellow, University of Regensburg, 1983-1984.
Back to the US, but not really too happy about it. Assistant Prof of Pharmaceutics, University of Illinois at Chicago, 1984-1986. Lots of struggles and uncertainties, but then the position as Associate Prof, Heidelberg University, 1986-1993 ! And finaly down to Bayern -- sorry Franken -- to take over the Chair of Pharmaceutics, Friedrich-Alexander University, Erlangen, 1993.
