Message from the Executive Director
Medical innovations create novel solutions to complex diseases and healthcare issues. Now, more than ever, the ability to conduct pivotal proof of concept and preclinical testing is a vital force in developing state-of-the-art products and services that can be approved for human clinical trials.
The Drug Dynamics Institute is a collaborative center, bringing together extensive scientific expertise and experience across industry, academia, and government partners.
The development of pharmaceutical and medical products is a rigorous and highly specialized process. The Drug Dynamics Institute has developed tools to help industry, start-ups, and academic researchers move ideas from the lab into human clinical trials via preclinical evaluation and development (TherapeUTex), Good Laboratory Practices compliant facilities (UT Advance), and wet lab incubator facilities (UTech Dorm Room). We look forward to working with you and your team in bringing new innovations to patients.
Janet Walkow, Ph.D., Executive Director & Chief Technology Officer
Our goal is to aid the progression of drug products and technologies through the development process by providing services
including drug formulation and delivery, in vitro and in vivo preclinical and proof-of-concept studies,
preparation, and lab-scale formulation and production.
