Annotation -
Lectures will be led by scientists and experts from the pharmaceutical company. Students will become familiar with current trends in drug product development. Lectures will encompass characterization and selection of active molecule, formulation processes, clinical testing and launch to marketplace. Students will work in groups – as a development team – to design and develop a drug product. Students will apply their knowledge from analytical, organic and physical chemistry, chemical engineering and biochemistry.

Aim of the course -

Students will understand the complexity of drug product development. They will gain knowledge through real-life case studies in intellectual property protection, solid state chemistry (selection and characterization of solid state forms), dissolution testing, formulation processes, clinical testing and drug product registration.

3. API solid state screening, relationships among solid forms of API, crystallization

4. Intellectual property: What to patent and why? Rules and strategies in pharma industry

5. API solid form selection based on physico-chemical properties (solid form stability/conversion, chemical stability, solubility)

6. Reverse engineering - analysis of reference drug product using a number of analytical approaches (X-ray powder diffraction, Raman microscopy, Scanning electron microscopy, solid state nuclear magnetic resonance)

7. Characterization of drug product 1: non-standard analytical approaches, dissolution and stress testing

8. How to select suitable formulation process and excipients, chemical sensitivity and compatibility
