Personal profile

Personal Statement

Joop ter Horst leads an application driven fundamental research group that will facilitate the paradigm shift to continuous manufacturing in the pharmaceutical industry. The group will identify routes to exploit the fundamental principles relating molecule, crystal structure and crystallization process phenomena to the crystal product quality to come to hybrid separation technologies to be incorporated in the continuous pharmaceutical manufacturing chain. He adopts a view from the molecular level and up for gaining fundamental understanding to use in control and prediction of new industrial crystallization processes. He cooperates with many university groups inside and outside the UK and his research benefits many industrial partners.
