Research interests

This is a pharmaceutical formulation project seeking to reformulate existing solid dosage forms into smaller but more efficient systems. Polymer combinations will be processed by solid dispersion and particle geometry modification technologies for optimising the formulations. 

The many possibilities arising from processing widely varying material combination will create the flexibility to tailor formulations for optimal functionality as well as presenting multiple drugs as single dosage systems in a reasonable size. Formulations will be investigated for their physical and chemical characteristics, performance and usefulness, in comparison to existing formulations. Outcome from this research could be applied to improving experience in polypharmacy."
