Site-specific Drug Delivery (SiteDel)

The scientific aim of the research group is to develop new site specific drug delivery systems and in addition acquire knowledge about basic mechanisms for controlling the site and the rate of drug release.

Particles made and studied within the SiteDel group include coated MCC pellet, spray-dried microparticles of pectin and microparticles composed of chitosan and PLGA.

About the group

SiteDel is an interdisciplinary research group working within the field of formulation, pharmaceutical technology and polymer chemistry.

We are working with physical characterisation and drug delivery applications of particles within a broad range in size with special focus on dendrimers, liposomes, polymer based nanoparticles and microparticles. In addition the group is working with hydrogels. The group has a high focus on bioadhesive systems. The relevant sites for drug release include the oral cavity, the upper part of the small intestine and the colon.

Research areas

Within SiteDel we have different sites of administration with special attention:

  • Drug delivery to the oral cavity
  • Intestinal drug delivery
  • Subcutaneous and Interstitial drug delivery
