Describe the key principles of preformulation.
Discuss the delivery methods for modern therapeutic proteins such as antibodies, growth factors etc.
Outline various non-invasive methods for drug delivery such as nasal, pulmonary, transdermal etc.
Describe polymer-based and lipid-based systems of drug delivery.
Describe the operating principles of lyophilisation.
