Fabrication of drug delivering composite microspheres: Evaluation/optimization of different process parameters
Polymer or composite microspheres are commonly used for a controlled drug delivery in the human body. The fabrication of those microspheres involves numerous parameters that influence the resulting composition, size and structure of the microspheres. The objective of this project is to fabricate different types of microspheres in order to evaluate the influence of the fabrication parameters. Furthermore, mechanical tests are planned to optimize the morphology of microsphere constructs for their use as drug delivery system.
