Personal profile


I have worked in the field of physical chemical characterisation of proteins since 1987. First as a PhD and research assistant working with protein adsorption to solid surfaces and the influence of other surface active components on this. After this I worked with oral and parenteral delivery of pharmaceutical peptides, in the capacity as head of formulation at Ferring AB. Upon my return to the University I have broaden the scope of delivery problems that I work with I have been involved in research endeavours often together with industry partners dealing with controlled delivery of both biological and traditional drugs. When it comes to protein delivery the focus has been on depo-formulations and recently on protein/surfactant interactions. For the traditional drugs most of the focus has been in using hydrogels both classical ones and hydrophobically modified ones for controlled delivery of lipophilic substances. An important part of this work is to investigate the physicochemical properties of the gels, including rheological properties. I am also involved in projects related to Pickering emulsions and primarily their use in formulations for topical creams. I have had several collaborations with pharmaceutical companies  especially through diploma workers but also in research collaborations. The companies include Ferring, AstraZeneca, McNeal, Bioglan, Bonesupport, Biogaia Zelmic technology, Nycomedpharma, Leopharma, and NovoNordisk.
