Research Themes

Bioactive delivery is a multi-dimensional challenge that remains a critical and often unsolved issue in product development. At the heart of CBD are organized multi-disciplinary teams focused on solutions to this complex landscape.

The long-term objective of the Center for Bioactive Delivery is to develop reliable, predictive models for optimized drug/carrier systems. This focus on synergies between the bioactive compound and its delivery for a suitable carrier solution creates a new paradigm for drug and nutrient delivery. The focus of our research falls into the following themes:
