Retinal Drug Delivery

Project: Research - Studentship

Project Details

Description

The Allergan project focuses on API infused PLGA implants for ocular drug delivery. These implants are bio-degradable meaning there is no need for surgical removal of the implant. The research currently focuses on investigating the degradation of the implants at 37oC (body temperature) and 50oC (to develop an accelerated degradation model) and observing if agitation has a significant effect on degradation rate. Implants were then fully characterised to determine the physical and chemical degradation effects.
