Chris McConville is a Senior Lecturer in Pharmaceutics, Formulation and Drug Delivery at the University of Birmingham. His previous experience within the pharmaceutical industry and academia has provided him with expertise in preformulation, dosage form design, drug delivery and analysis.

He believes that for most diseases we currently have some excellent drug candidates; but in some cases we just choose to administer them incorrectly. Therefore, there is a need to improve the way in which we deliver certain drugs to the body.

His research is focused on the design, formulation and characterisation of novel dosage forms and delivery devices to improve therapeutic outcomes for patients, while reducing systemic toxicities and improving their quality of life during treatment.

This talk is part of the Electrical Engineering series.
