NJIT Distinguished Professor to Speak at Graduate Seminar Series

Rajesh N. Davé, distinguished professor in the Department of Chemical, Biological and Pharmaceutical Engineering, will present “From Fundamental Research to Commercialization: NSF-Engineering Research Center on Structured Organic Particulate Systems (C-SOPS)” on April 14 at 2:45 p.m. in Kupfrian Hall, Room 210.  Research activities at NJIT as part of the C-SOPS will be discussed, including the efforts towards commercialization of research done by students and postdocs at NJIT. The work involves particle engineering that exploits interactions at the nano-scale to improve pharmaceutical products. The work emphasizes improved bioavailability of poorly water soluble drugs, overcoming the difficulties in processing pharmaceutical materials due to their high cohesion, and pushing the boundaries of processibility of pharmaceutical powders for specific applications such as taste-masking.
