It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Jacques van Rooyen, PhD on May 23, 2018. Jacques was an advisory board member of Pharmahungary, and a good friend of our CEO Prof. Ferdinandy. Jacques had a great scientific career that was followed by a successful business carrier in the biotech industry. He was the Vice-President of the USA based Binutra Inc. and Executive Director of Bio-Cap Technologies in South Africa, two companies that are involved in novel delivery systems, equipment development, and proprietary formulations. He was a leading researcher on the effect of red palm oil in cardiac health and protection and his team published more than 20 papers on red palm oil supplementation and heart protection.

Jacques will always be fondly remembered by the team of Pharmahungary Group.
