Drug Design, Development, and Delivery: An Interdisciplinary Course on Pharmaceuticals
Prausnitz, Mark R.; Bommarius, Andreas S.
Chemical Engineering Education, v45 n1 p47-52 Win 2011
We developed a new interdisciplinary course on pharmaceuticals to address needs of undergraduate and graduate students in chemical engineering and other departments. This course introduces drug design, development, and delivery in an integrated fashion that provides scientific depth in context with broader impacts in business, policy, and ethics. Emphasis on case studies of real drug products, combined with in-class student project presentations, employs active learning with direct relevance to industrial practice and daily life.
