This division has a wide range of interests in cutting-edge drug and gene delivery topics and is actively researching new methods of growing functional tissues in the laboratory. Our work is focused on these areas in particular: colloidal and targeted systems via parenteral and pulmonary routes; formulation insight and controlled release mechanisms inside pharmaceutical dosage forms; colloid engineering for drug delivery; synthesis of novel polymers and tissue engineering. Within tissue engineering we are actively researching new methods of growing functional tissues in the laboratory. Current research is focused on the growth or repair of spinal cord nerves; peripheral nerves; muscle and neuromuscular junctions; liver and cartilage and bone.
