Luto founder given a lifetime achievement award

Professor Theo Raynor, who co-founded Luto research in 2004 and continues to play a large role in the company as academic advisor, was given a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society at a recent ceremony at the Birmingham International Convention Centre.

The nomination records that Theo has pioneered innovative, patient centered research in communicating medicines information over the past 35 years. This research has informed significant improvements nationally and internationally in the information supplied by pharmacist to patients.

Professor Raynor said. “I am thrilled and honoured to receive this award. Through managing information about medicines, and making it easy to understand, pharmacists are better able to help patients become more informed about the medicine they take, helping to make them more able to take those medicines safely and effectively”.

He noted that his more recent work, which has reached national and international audiences, was a result of the synergy between his academic work at the University of Leeds and his work at Luto.
