The Williams’ Lab

The research in my laboratory focuses on the formulation development, optimization, and delivery of small organic compounds, peptides, and proteins by a variety of technologies, including depot drug delivery, oral drug delivery and pulmonary/nasal drug delivery.  Significant effort is devoted to research to enhance drug solubility and dissolution through novel particle engineering technologies, including thin film freezing and precipitation processes, and thermal processes such as hot melt extrusion.

In addition, other current research has focused on aerosol device technology, and novel analytical methods to quantitate and characterize these technologies. Analytical techniques including cascade impaction, HPLC, GC, X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy, Karl Fisher, laser light diffraction and TLC are routinely used to investigate raw materials and formulations.
