Research Interests

Mixing in reactive and multiphase flows, blending of dry powders, and applications of the fundamental concepts of chaos theory

I have spent the last 25 years focused on developing and applying systematic engineering methodologies for the design and optimization of pharmaceutical products and processes. My work has included the study of many manufacturing methods, including liquid mixing, powder blending, granulation, tableting, and coating. In the last 15 years, my focus gradually shifted to continuous processes. I started a research consortium on this topic in 2002, and expanded it in 2006 when the NSF ERC on Structured Organic Particulate Systems was funded. As director of this large center, I had an opportunity to learn how to manage a large research enterprise across multiple institutions and supported by many companies. The ERC succeeded in demonstrating the advantages of continuous manufacturing, which in the last five years has become a priority at the FDA, BARDA, and the industry. During this same period, we initiated a partnership with Janssen pharmaceuticals, leading to the development of a continuous process for the anti-HIV medication Prezista, which was the first conversion from batch to continuous approved by FDA in April 2016.

 

Overall, through my work in pharmaceutical manufacturing, I have authored over 200 publications, with half of those related to continuous processes. This work also enabled me to assemble a very strong team of colleagues, post docs, and students, and to develop a very strong infrastructure dedicated to materials characterization, process development, and product testing. This team and this infrastructure are ideally suited for the proposed project.
