PharmaceuticalsSurface and colloid sciences are important enabling sciences in the development of pharmaceutical drug products and medical devices, as support competences or as integral parts of the product development.
Classical challenges in the pharmaceutical area for colloid and surface sciences involve drug delivery and controlled release technologies.
Early formulation challenges with poorly soluble drugs and labile biomolecules are two areas where we have strong expertise. These areas are seeing an increasing need of S&T developments.
Prioritised Research within Pharmaceuticals
- Complex liquid formulations
- Solid and powder formulations
- Formulation of labile biomolecules
- Rational formulation
In recent years our activities in the pharmaceutical area have ranged from traditional CRO development projects, to trouble-shooting challenges, and collaborative research projects. Important fundamental research are on-going on topics as novel drug delivery carriers and imaging techniques for solid pharmaceutical drug products.
