What Starts Here Changes the World
The Molecular Pharmaceutics and Drug Delivery faculty and labs are on the forefront of research in the field. Our breakthroughs are regularly featured in the media and in academic publications.
Announcements and Accomplishments
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 and an undergraduate researcher in the Pharmaceutical Engineering and 3D Printing (PharmE3D) Labs led by Mo Maniruzzaman, Ph.D.
“I’m so excited that Johana Suh was awarded this highly prestigious accolade that will help expand her important research,” says Dr. Maniruzzaman, an assistant professor in the Division of Molecular Pharmaceutics and Drug Delivery.
Molecular Pharmaceutics and Drug Delivery Professor Maria A. Croyle, Ph.D. received extensive coverage in the March 2021 edition of Texas Monthly regarding her innovative peelable film drug delivery research. Among its many potential applications, Dr. Croyle’s technology could deliver COVID-19 vaccines through a small oral strip, without need for refrigeration or extensive storage and transportation infrastructure.
Molecular Pharmaceutics and Drug Delivery professor Maria A. Croyle, Ph.D. earned 2021’s David Lehr Research Award from the American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics (ASPET). Dr. Croyle will receive research funding to investigate novel regulatory mechanisms of drug metabolism in the context of active infection with SARS-CoV-2 and after recovery.
