Dosage Forms and Drug Delivery

PHA 6935 Dosage Forms and Drug Delivery

Credits: 3
Tuition: $1,725


Description

Participants in this course will explore the rational formulation and manufacture of dosage forms for all major routes of drug administration. We begin with an overview of the drug development process, followed by a review of the major concepts of biopharmaceutics and pharmaceutical preformulation. With an understanding of these concepts, we will methodically explore how stable and effective dosage forms are developed and manufactured with respect to their intended routes of administration. While the focus will be on small molecule drugs, we will conclude with an overview of the formulation and administration of therapeutic proteins.
