Drug Delivery Systems for Poorly Soluble Drug Substances
With the advancements in pharmaceuticals research has come screening techniques resulting in a huge number of new potential drug substances. Unfortunately an increasing percentage of these molecules have low solubility in aqueous systems and hence cannot be delivered by typical delivery systems. Such hydrophobic and amphiphilic substances require novel and often case-specific delivery solutions in order to produce effective approved drug products.
At YKI we have experience in different aspects of surface and colloid chemistry which allow us to design case specific delivery systems and more generally, new delivery platforms. In addition, due to our strong interactions with the pharmaceutical industry, we are able to investigate relevant applications for the future of drug product development. In addition to fully scalable production facilities, YKI also has the benefit of a world-class characterization lab.
The current work centers around the challenging area of poorly soluble drug substances and in particular lipid-based delivery platforms. This can be applied to both mucosal and parenteral (injectable) applications, each with their own challenges.
Program in chemical engineering, physical chemistry or equivalent.
Courses in biology and polymer chemistry are a merit.
Start: Spring term 2007. 20 credit points.
