Research in this centre is focused on the design, development and translation of formulations and the materials and processes which turn drugs into medicines. Our major aim is to carry out research that improves health by achieving improvements in drug bioavailability, patient compliance and safety.

Activities are concentrated on the development of formulations to address major global issues, resolutions for hard-to-deliver drugs and the development of materials to provide enhanced functionality for drug delivery. We have a track record of world-class research with collaborations with NHS, industry and other academic institutions. We also host an International Clinical Research Unit, collaborating on clinical activities.

We deliver high quality training to researchers in all areas related to pharmaceutics and drug delivery in a research environment that fosters a multidisciplinary approach
