Boosting advanced doctoral training in innovative colon targeting drugs

Project description

Training in colon specific drug delivery (colon targeting)

Oral administration may be the most convenient and preferred drug delivery route, but issues relating to solubility, absorption and metabolism hamper its effectiveness. Moreover, the performance of formulations that deliver drugs specifically to the large intestine (so called colon targeting formulations) also depends on intra- and inter-individual physiological variability (e.g. pH profile in the gastrointestinal tract). The EU-funded COLOTAN project aims to address such drug delivery challenges as well as the lack of tools and models that recapitulate events occurring in the colon which can predict colon specific drug release, absorption and performance. Through an interdisciplinary research and training programme that also includes career development activities, COLOTAN will support the next generation of pharmaceutical scientists.
