Pharmaceutics deals with the science of making a chemical or biological entity suitable for delivery to humans as a therapeutic product. It therefore covers formulation and manufacture of these products. This course will give students the skills to understand how different types of medicines are formulated and the effect of different formulations on the properties of the medicine and the manufacturing processes for the medicine. It will cover advanced formulations such as extended and modified release tablets, patches, injectables, biologicals (such as cell and tissue therapies) and delivery devices, as well as diagnostics. Stability, bioavailability, bioequivalence and sterility requirements for medicines will be covered as will repurposing of medicines for new uses and development of new formulations.
