(iCASE Award) Towards Particle Design of Pharmaceutical Crystals

  • Full or part time
  • Application Deadline
    Tuesday, June 30, 2020
  • Competition Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)
    Competition Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

Project Description

This project is being pursued in collaboration with AstraZeneca and the successful applicant will be part of a larger research group supervised by Dr. Cruz-Cabeza and Prof. Davey.

Most pharmaceutical drugs are delivered as tablets. The design of compliant tablets requires an in-depth understanding of how crystalline particles of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients behave. This project will use a combination of experimentation (with surface analysis techniques and microscopy) and molecular simulations in order to better understand particle properties such as adhesion or sticking issues to name a few.

The successful candidate will be expected to learn both experimentation as well as simulation techniques.

Funding Notes

Applicants should have or expect to achieve at least a 2.1 honours degree in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering or Physics. The successful applicant will receive a full tuition fee waiver and the EPSRC standard stipend.
