Institute for Pharma Technology

Developing and producing medicines and biopharmaceutically evaluating their quality.

The Institute for Pharma Technology deals with teaching and research in the technological field of pharmaceutical sciences.  Our work focuses on the industrial activities involved in turning an active substance into a form of medicine that is ready to use. This includes developing formulations, optimising bioavailability and absorption of active substances, developing and optimising production processes and techniques, looking at the production operations themselves, researching natural products, researching drug delivery, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics and quality assurance.

We work with industrial partners in our teaching and research while paying special attention to the stringent quality demands placed on medicines, the needs of society and the economic viability.  Our staff offer both academic and practical experience and channel this into their activities to great advantage.
