Research Interests

Our current research is focused on thermal processing technologies, including hot-melt extrusion and KinetiSol® processing, to increase the dissolution rate and bioavailability of poorly water soluble drugs.  These technologies are also being employed to create novel extended release and targeted drug delivery systems for both water soluble and poorly water soluble compounds.  An additional research emphasis is on film coating technologies including dry powder coating for taste masking, controlled release and targeted drug delivery systems. Analytical techniques including HPLC, GPC, DSC and X-ray diffraction are routinely used in our investigations to characterize stability and other important properties of raw materials and the finished dosage form.
