The Timmerman Award is named after a respected Dutch pharmacologist Henk Timmerman. He has significantly contributed to pharmacochemistry initiation and development in Indonesia since the 1980s. During 1986-1996, Timmerman and several other VU Amsterdam colleagues collaborated with the UGM Faculty of Pharmacy to establish Mid Career Training on Pharmacochemistry (MCTP) for lecturers at UGM and other pharmacy schools in Indonesia. For his distinguished contribution, UGM conferred an honorary degree (Doctor Honoris Causa) upon him in 2003.
