PhD fellowship in Drug Delivery: Overcoming the skin barrier using a multiple prodrugs approach

Image
  The Department of Pharmacy is offering a three-year PhD fellowship in drug delivery to skin. The PhD fellowship is financed by the LEO Foundation as part of the LEO Foundation Center for Cutaneous Drug Delivery (LFCCDD) to which the project is affiliated. The successful applicant will be a member of the Pharmaceutical Physical Chemistry group and will have the opportunities for cross-disciplinary research in collaboration with the other sections of the Center as well as external collaborators.
