PhD position in physical pharmacy

The research focus of the physical pharmacy group has been pharmaceutical applications of cyclodextrins and cyclodextrin (CD) nanoparticles for drug delivery, especially topical drug delivery to the eye, as well as in parenteral, nasal and dermal drug delivery.

The group is linked to the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Iceland and an EU-funded Marie Curie training network CYCLON-HIT with the overall goal to investigate nanocarriers for the delivery of antimicrobial agents to overcome multi-drug resistance.

Job assignments
The Ph.D. student will mainly be involved in formation and testing of drug containing nanoparticles. The student will investigate the physical chemistry of CD self-association, stability testing of nanoparticles, determination of nanoparticle drug loading, permeation studies through biological membranes and determination of drug release from the nanoparticles. This will involve studies of:
1) the interactions between antibacterial drugs and various CDs and CD polymers, the forces involved and the drug release,
2) the enzymatic and non-enzymatic drug degradation in presence of CDs and their polymers,
3) the formation of nanoparticles and their stability and
4) in vitro and in vivo assessment of the antibacterial activity.
