The mission of the CIMSEPP is to advance and promote fundamental understanding of the material properties and interactions between drugs and additives at molecular and particulate level as affected by manufacturing processes on product quality, performance, and stability. This will facilitate Quality-by-Design (QbD) of drug products and afford smoother manufacturing scale-up, including transition to continuous processing from batch processing. 

The overarching mission includes:

  • Advancing the fundamental understanding of structure-function-performance of drug products and process engineering, paving the way for enhancing drug product quality, drug bioavailability and stability
  • Cultivating a holistic environment for open-minded industrial/academic interactions for targeted industrially relevant research
  • Promoting translational research leading to innovations and intellectual property; and
  • Developing a diverse, well-trained workforce vital to maintaining US leadership in this field
