Drug Transport and Delivery
Drug Transport and Delivery Research Group focuses on pharmaceutical technology as scientific discipline with particular interests in drug transport across biological membranes and drug delivery systems as means for improved bioavailability.
The group aims at gaining a deeper understanding of transport processes of drugs in the body and its inter-relationship with drug delivery systems. The aim is the optimization of various drug dosage forms and delivery systems (advanced formulations) destined for oral, vaginal, parenteral and topical route of drug administration. Advanced drug dosage forms and delivery systems should promote the therapeutic effects of the drug and reduce its toxic effects by increasing the amount and persistence of drug in vicinity of target cells and reducing the drug exposure to non targets cells.
