I have been employed by the University in the School of Pharmacy since 1980. Between 1995 and 2000, I was seconded by Glaxo as a research assistant as part of the University’s Drug Delivery Group. This project was to develop supercritical fluid technology for controlled particle formation which resulted in a patented industrial process. Since 2000, I continue to be a lecturer in Pharmaceutics in addition to being the University’s Radiation and Safety Officer.
