The aim of this project is to expand current knowledge on the influence of a polymer on the supersaturation propensity of a drug. This work will be used as an evaluation of the feasibility of the polymers for use in solid dispersions. The project will be in collaboration between the Solid State Pharmaceutics group at University of Copenhagen and the Department of Oral Formulation Research at Novo Nordisk, Måløv. The majority of the research work will be carried out at Novo Nordisk. From the project, the student(s) will get insights on solid state characterization, material science and analytical testing, which are often used in pre-formulation and drug development. The project will be 45 ECTS and is open to both individuals and students who would like to work in a pair. The candidate(s) should have an interest in design of experiments and multivariate data analysis.
