Developing Innovations in the Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Process
Dr Sheng Qi has a keen interest in developing innovations in the pharmaceutical manufacturing process and controlled drug delivery technology.
She has to date over 60 peer-reviewed publications and 5 book chapters in this field. Her recent work on Fused Deposition Modelling 3D Printing (FDM 3DP) of solid dispersions based oral controlled delivery of poorly soluble drugs demonstrated the potential as well as identified the technological challenges of adapting FDM 3DP for manufacturing oral solid dosage forms. She has been working with academic collaborators in engineering, manufacturing design, and computational simulation alongside industrial end users and partners to build upon process optimisation and design principles of FDM 3DP which is crucial for the healthcare industry in moving forward and adopting 3DP for future personalised medicine development and manufacturing.
