 RTD Experiences

 RTD focus of organization
Nanocarriers for drug delivery and targeting, peroral, parenteral - formulation and preparation

 Description of RTD activities
formulation and delivery of conventional drug molecules and products of biotechnology, Research team main fields are within the scope of formulation science, dosage form design and evaluation, targeted delivery, mucoadhesive drug delivery systems, absorption enhancement. The main areas of research are: 1. Formulation of Controlled and Targeted drug delivery systems 2. Application of New Biomaterials as colloidal drug carriers- microspheres, nanospheres, liposomes 3. Alternative routes of application for peptides and proteins and their optimal stability and activity 4. Evaluation of Drug/polymer, protein/polymer interactions The group mission is scientific research in drug delivery with emphasis on efficaceous treatment (targeted and controlled delivery)/ and or prevention of diseases

 Experiences in international Programmes
Influence of biopolymer interactions on the drug delivery from chitosan-alginate colloidal carrier systems (2002-2006) financed by NATO (program: Science for Peace).

Polymers for preparation of carier-systems for antibiotic and tissue ingenering (2003 - 2006) financed by TUBITAK – Turkey and Ministry of Science and Education of the Republic of Macedonia.

Preparation and evaluation of biodegradable microparticles for oral controlled drug delivery (2005-2008) financed by TUBITAK – Turkey and Ministry of Science and Education of the Republic of Macedonia.
