Design, development and industrial translation of novel systems for patient-focused administration of difficult-to-deliv
a. HIV Prevention and Multipurpose Prevention Technologies
Research activities are focused on the design, laboratory-scale manufacturing and testing of sustained release and controlled release drug formulations to address major global issues around sexual and reproductive health.
b. Solid Dosage Forms
Research activities are focussed on the application of fluidised hot melt granulation and polymer extrusion/injection moulding technologies to produce solid dosage forms, multi-layered and targeted drug delivery systems, dosage systems for the delivery of poorly soluble therapeutic agents, molecular recognition and pre-formulation in and leading to the solid state.
Research activities are focused on:
- Transdermal delivery of high drug doses
- Intradermal administration of long-acting therapies
- Minimally-invasive patient monitoring/diagnosis
- Risk-free vaccination
- Ocular drug delivery
