My research aims at developing new tools to investigate the interaction between small drug compounds and the fluids in the Gastro-Intestinal Tract.

In order to have an effective oral drug delivery strategy, it is necessary for a drug compound to dissolve in gastro-intestinal fluids and be available for absorption. However many drug compounds in development have poor water solubility. Hence, solubility-limited absorption is often one of the obstacles that have to be solved before a new drug product can reach the patients.

This project is part of the European Innovative Medicines Initiative project “Oral Biopharmaceutics Tools (OrBiTo)”.

The project is a collaboration of 12 pharmaceutical companies, 9 universities, 3 smaller companies and 2 public bodies.
