The mission of the Division of Drug Delivery Technology is to provide new strategies for the delivery of biologically active compounds at the right dose, at the right time and at the right place. In order to achieve this, novel drug delivery systems are designed and the interactions of these delivery systems with biological systems are investigated at the (sub) cellular, tissue and organism level, both in vitro and in vivo. Currently the division focuses on three major research themes:

  • Transdermal and dermal drug delivery
  • Nasal and (epi) dermal vaccine delivery
  • Unwanted immunogenicity of therapeutic proteins
