Wednesday 20 December, national competence center SweDeliver welcomes to the fourth half-time seminar of this semester: Anna Simonsson, PhD student at the Department of Pharmacutical biosciences, will present her research project Blend state-blend property relationships of adhesive mixtures for inhalation powders, conducted in close cooperation with AstraZeneca.

“We aim to increase the possibility to administer the optimal amount of pharmaceutical substances to the lung with mixtures that remain stable to the exact point of dissolution and uptake. To succeed will require increased knowledge of how airways, particles and numerous other factors interact, which in turn is decisive whether a treatment will have the intended effect. If we achieve this, I am convinced that we will add important knowledge to both research and, in the long term, clinically useful methods,” states Anna Simonsson.

Anna Simonsson earned her master of science degree in pharmacy at Uppsala University's Faculty of Pharmacy in 2015. After conducting her master's thesis in pharmacognosy at London's UCL School of Pharmacy, assignments as Pharmacy Manager followed in Norway and Sweden before being recruited to her current PhD assignment at Professor Göran Alderborn's research environment in Pharmaceutical Technology.

At the half-time seminar, the following committee will attend:

  • Alexandra Teleki, Associate professor, Department of Pharmacy, Uppsala University.
  • Kyrre Thalberg, Adjunct professor, Department of food technology, engineering and nutrition, Lund University.
  • Mikael Ekström, PhD in physical chemistry, senior scientific advisor at Ionovo.
