His passion and dream of being a useful person drove Prof. Dr. Bambang Prajogo E.W., MS. Initially, he did not have any dream career which he wanted to pursue in the future. He only thought that at least his knowledge could be contributed positively to solve problems in society. From that point on, his expertise in Pharmacognosy and Phytochemistry led him to produce various kinds of herbal medicines useful for public. One of them is morning after pill for men. Bambangs passion in those areas grew since he was an undergraduate student in Universitas Airlangga in 1983. He completed his Pharmacist Educational Profession program in UNAIR in 1984. Then, he pursued his Master degree in Universitas Gadjah Mada, Yogyakarta. Before pursuing his Doctoral degree, Bambang participated in special training, “Mid Career Training of Pharmacochemistry”, Gadjah Mada University in collaboration with Vrije University in 1987 and “Training of Good Laboratory”, University de Lausanne, Switzerland in 1995.
Seven years later in 2002, he completed his Doctoral degree in UNAIR. Bambang realized that working in field of education meant that he has responsibility to tackle problems and give contribution to society by consistently conducting research. Furthermore, Bambang obtained many grants to develop his research, such as: “Isolat gendarusin A (6,8di- C-L-arabinosilapigenin) dari daun Justicia gendarussa Burm.f sebagai anti HIV,” from Uber Haki Dikti in 2011; “Penerapan produk fitofarmaka kapsul gandarusa (Obat KB pria pada skala industri)”, Excellent Research in University grant from Dipa BOPTN in 2013 and 2014; “Produksi Sediaan Fitofarmaka Kapsul Gandarusa (Justicia gendarussa Burm.f) sebagai Obat KB Pria [Patent No. ID 0 020 305].” He does not only lecture in Indonesia but also abroad. Few times, he became a visiting professor, for instance: Sandwich Program, August – December 2001, Pharmacognosy and Phytochemistry Laboratory in University de Lausanne-Switzerland. (*)
