Pharmaceutical Surface Science Research Group

Research interests are focussed on investigating the physicochemical properties which govern inter-particulate adhesion, issues relating to the surface stability of processed particles and the general areas of particle technology and crystal growth.

Specific interests include:

  1. Particulate interactions in dry powder inhalation (DPI) formulations and suspension based pressurised metered dose inhaler (pMDI) formulations. [Further Information]
  1. Development, processing and optimisation of formulations for inhalation systems.
  1. Development of novel particle engineering and processing techniques for specific pharmaceutical applications. [Further Information]
  1. Surface energetic and surface stability properties of active pharmaceutical ingredients. [Further Information]
