Marcus E. Brewster helped to initiate the Oral Biopharmaceutics Tools project (OrBiTo) and became a key member. Marcus served as coordinator of the work package In Vivo Methods in Oral Drug Absorption and also served on the Executive Committee Board. Marcus passed away unexpectedly 15 September 2014, which was a major loss not only for OrBiTo, but for the whole pharmaceutical sciences community.
In order to honor Marcus, the Editorial Team of the Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences (JPharmSci®) decided to dedicate a special issue to Dr. Marcus E. Brewster. This has now been published as the September 2016 issue of JPharmSci, and its content can be found on http://www.jpharmsci.org/issue/S0022-3549(16)X0010-X ; this issue includes contributions from many OrBiTo-partners.
In addition, Marcus has been included among the "TRUE GIANTS" in the pharmaceutical sciences website http://www.jpharmsci.org/giants-of-pharmaceutical-sciences
