|1/19/2018 13:10:27||Investigation of the Stabilization and Processing Aspects of Nanomilling for Bioavailability Enhancement of BCS Class II Drugs||BCS Class II drugs will be wet media milled (nanomilled) in an aqueous solution of various classes of dispersants and resulting suspensions will be characterized using laser diffraction, rheometry, and thermal analysis. The nanomilling process will be intensified using a microhydrodynamic model-guided approach. The stabilization mechanisms will be elucidated considering dispersant properties, and impact of process intensification on drug particle size, process cycle time, and breakage kinetics will be examined.||MS Student||At least three consecutive semesters||GPA > 3.4, willingness to write an MS thesis, good oral and written English||Current MS students in CHE or Pharmaceutical Engineering||Prof. Ecevit Bilgiliemail@example.com|
|1/19/2018 14:08:50||Metal-based reactive materials||Metal powders are used as fuels in propellants, explosives, and pyrotechnics. This project is aimed at developing new metal-based materials with improved ignition and combustion properties. The new materials are composite powders and alloys with customized compositions. The research involves synthesis of new materials, characterization of their structures and properties, and custom ignition and combustion tests.||Undergrad or MS||Spring 2018||GPA > 3.5||Junior and above||Edward L.

Comparative Assessment of Amorphous Solid Dispersions vs. Nanocomposites for Dissolution Enhancement of BCS Class II Drugs
A spray drying process will be used with either a drug solution feed or nanosuspension feed to prepare drug ASDs or nanocomposites with the goal of enhancing the bioavailability of several BCS Class II drugs. ASDs and nanocomposites will be characterized. Several drug-polymer pairs will be used to modulate drug release during in-vitro dissolution.
At least three semesters, Independent Study I or II
