Researchers in UT Pharmacy's Pharmaceutical Engineering and 3D Printing (PharmE3D) Labs have earned a bevy of national and international awards for their work in pharmaceutical drug delivery and 3D printing personalized medicines.
Dr. Mo Maniruzzaman's Pharmaceutical Engineering and 3D Printing Labs have received a federal grant from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to develop personalized 3D printed non-hormonal intrauterine devices (IUDs). The project’s goal is to increase global access to long-term and effective contraception while minimizing some of its most debilitating side effects.
The College of Pharmacy’s Pharmaceutical Engineering and 3D Printing (PharmE3D) Labs recently earned a three-year $1.5 million National Institutes of Health (NIH) R01 grant to research novel manufacturing technology for complex vaccine formulations for influenza and other emerging infectious diseases.
The college's Pharmaceutical Engineering and 3D Printing (PharmE3D) labs, led by Assistant Professor in Molecular Pharmaceutics and Drug Delivery Mohammed (Mo) Maniruzzaman, Ph.D., has recently earned several national and international awards and scholarships for outstanding research contributions to the field of pharmaceutical science and technology.
UT Pharmacy and UT Health Science Center San Antonio Assistant Professor Grace C. Lee, Pharm.D., Ph.D. is the first author of a recently published study that unveiled a novel concept, “immunologic resilience,” to accurately predict which COVID-19 patients will advance to severe disease and which will not.
Three researchers from the College of Pharmacy won an award from the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) Foundation. Leticia R. Moczygemba, Pharm.D., Ph.D., Carolyn M. Brown, Ph.D. and Michael Johnsrud, Ph.D., R.Ph. were awarded $5,000 from the PhRMA Foundation for their proposal to advance racial and ethnic representation in value assessments.
Student pharmacist Johana Suh earned an undergraduate fellowship award for research on 3D bioprinted modeling of the neurodegenerative disease NPC-1, or Niemann-Pick disease type C1. Suh is a second-year Doctor of Pharmacy candidate in the UT College of Pharmacy, and serves as an undergraduate researcher in the Pharmaceutical Engineering and 3D Printing (PharmE3D) Labs led by Mo Maniruzzaman, Ph.D.
Nicholas A. Peppas, Sc.D. has been honored with the 2020 Oesper Award from the University of Cincinnati’s Chemistry Department and the Cincinnati Section of the American Chemical Society for his outstanding accomplishments in and contributions to science. The award recognizes his work in biomaterials, drug delivery, bionanotechnology, and nanomaterials.
Researchers in the lab of Dr. Hugh D.C. Smyth have released promising results of a new method to treat SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. The antiviral niclosamide, when incorporated with human lysozyme as a carrier molecule, shows potential as an effective COVID-19 treatment when delivered directly to the airways.
