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.
The University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy moved up in several research funding categories, as reported in the newly-released rankings from the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP). The college rose to #8 nationally in total research funding during the 2019-2020 fiscal year, compared to #9 in 2018-2019.
Combining mobile health technology, or mHealth, and community outreach to improve the health outcomes of people experiencing homelessness is the target of a new study led by Division of Health Outcomes Associate Professor Leticia Moczygemba, Pharm.D., Ph.D., thanks to a five-year research grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
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.
Assistant Professor Mo Maniruzzaman’s Pharmaceutical Engineering and 3D Printing (PharmE3D) labs have entered an agreement with UK-based CoM3D to develop digital 3D drug manufacturing and advanced drug delivery systems.
To meet the need to develop methods to make drugs more soluble and usable, the Maniruzzaman Lab teamed up with Advanced Material Development (AMD) to address challenges with the reduction in quantity of new drugs coming to market.
