Abstract

The role of structure in drug delivery system engineering has become more diverse over the few decades or so. In recent times, there has been an interest in not-particulate systems for the development of drug delivery systems, which has arisen from the need to improve physical and chemical interaction properties with the host environment. To this end, there has been a significant increase in the deployment and engineering of fiber based systems as potential drug delivery carriers. Several methods have been explored and electrospinning technology, a method to engineer such structures, has gained much popularity over the last decade. This talk will focus on the electrospinning technique which belongs to the Electrohydrodynamic (EHDA) family of processes. Fundamental principles will be discussed and key developments in the area will be shown. Furthermore, concepts relating to compartmentalization and upscale will be presented. Finally, examples of ongoing developments between industry and academia will be highlighted, showing collaboration between industry and academia.
