Electrospinning is a method of producing nanofibres for a variety of applications. In this project we are developing the use of these technologies for oral delivery of poorly soluble drugs. The project will involve a combination of chemistry, engineering and drug delivery and applicants with a background in any of these areas will be welcome.
Main Methods and Techniques to be employed
· Thermal analysis
