Personal Statement

Clive Wilson is the J. P. Todd Professor of Pharmaceutics at Strathclyde University and serves on the European Union Federation of Pharmaceutical Sciences teaching and overseas liaison committee. He completed his Ph.D. with Professor Dennis Parke in drug metabolism at the University of Surrey. His first position was an Asthma Research Council Fellow at the Cardiothoracic Institute, London becoming a Lecturer in Biochemical Pharmacology and moving to Nottingham Medical School to become Reader in Applied Pharmacology.

Major areas of research have been the study of the behaviour of drug formulations in man. With colleagues at Nottingham, he pioneered applications of scintigraphy in the study of physiological and patho-physiological effects on drug absorption following oral, nasal, pulmonary and ophthalmic delivery. In the university, his group collaborates with industry on ophthalmic drug delivery projects especially related to the behaviour of ocular implants. He is a member of the steering group of the IMI OrBiTo programme and co-manages the Strathclyde group with Professor Gavin Halbert. Recent new areas of interest include additive soft and hard matrix technologies for drug delivery, and several programmes in novel therapies for treating ulcerative colitis.

Primary Teaching activities are in the field of Biopharmaceutics and formulation research.
