Andrew Bond

!!adjungeret professor


Andrew Bond is Professor of Solid-State Drug Analysis at the Department of Pharmacy. He has Bachelor and Master degrees in chemistry from the University of Oxford, and received his Ph.D. in solid-state chemistry from the University of Cambridge in 2001. After continuing in a postdoctoral position in Cambridge for 2 years, he moved to Denmark in 2003, to the University of Southern Denmark, Odense. He was awarded a STENO stipend from the Danish Natural Sciences Research Council in 2004, then became Associate Professor in 2006 and Professor MSO in 2009. He moved to the University of Copenhagen as Professor in 2013. His research is in the area of pharmaceutical materials science, focussing on structure and properties of drug compounds in the solid state. He is a user of synchrotron facilities for structural-based research, and an editorial board member for International Union of Crystallography (IUCr) journals.


Primary Research Areas

The focus is on molecular-level understanding of structure and properties in pharmaceutical materials. We use and develop experimental methods for analysis of drugs in the solid state, both in the home laboratory and at synchrotron facilities. We aim to go beyond the textbook representation of crystalline materials to a more realistic description of solid-state structure, including disorder and dynamics. The aim is to provide more effective links between structure and relevant properties in pharmaceutical materials. Primary technical expertise within the group is structure analysis by X-ray diffraction methods.
