Dear members of the K.N.P.S.V.,

Knowledge. The definition of knowledge is still an ongoing debate and has been over the last centuries. One thing that is mostly agreed upon is that knowledge does not emerge out of nowhere. It can come from experience, education or even the Folia Pharmaceutica. Each of these things have one thing in common, they are all sources of knowledge. We would therefore like to introduce ourselves, the new editorial committee for the Folia Pharmaceutica 20/21, as ‘Fontana’.

Our committee consists of six motivated students from Utrecht University that are determined to provide all K.N.P.S.V. members with fun and interesting articles written by experienced authors. In the chair position we have Job Markink. He is 23 years old, studies College of Pharmaceutical Sciences and has a huge interest in basketball. Besides being a sports fanatic, he is also a citizen of the world. Having lived in many different countries like Italy, Denmark and Brazil, he came back to The Netherlands to absorb some of the cultural heritage provided by his country of origin. Our secretariat will be run by Lydia. Lydia is a very bubbly person who likes to hang out with friends and has a great interest in fashion. Due to her busy schedule, she’s learned to be very organized and work efficiently, which makes her the perfect secretary. Casper Claessens is the treasurer of ‘Fontana’. He is 19 years old and was born in the southern part of the country, Maastricht. He currently lives and goes to university in Utrecht, where he studies Pharmacy. His hobbies include running, cycling, watching sports and hanging with friends.

Jingjing is an enthusiastic, lively and open person and she loves to eat out or do a fun activity with friends. She also loves to cook, bake, draw and read. As Editor I she will share her creativity and baking recipes with you this year. Tharsiga is our committed Editor II. She is a second year Pharmacy student in Utrecht. In her free time she loves running, playing the piano and drawing. You can probably already tell that Tharsiga is passionate about many different things, including the Folia Pharmaceutica and K.N.P.S.V. of course! Yong Xin can be found in various classes of her master programme, Pharmacy. If not, she will most probably be at a restaurant, as she loves to eat out. Recently she has become a traveler and secretly wants to leave the Netherlands for a new adventure. This adventurer will work for this year’s Folia committee as Editor III.

On behalf of the Folia Pharmaceutica committee 2020-2021 “Fortuna”,

Job markink

h.t. President Folia Pharmaceutica committee 2020-2021
