Lecturer in Pharmaceutics
King’s College London, United Kingdom
Dr Driton Vllasaliu (PhD) is a Lecturer in Pharmaceutics at the Institute of Pharmaceutical Science, King’s College London. Driton is also a registered pharmacist (MPharm University of Nottingham, 2004). His research interests centre around overcoming the biological barriers to improve drug delivery and enable non-invasive delivery (e.g. oral) of biologics, which currently require administration by injections. As part of this, he has specific interests in drug delivery systems, including nanomedicines, for mucosal delivery. He is also interested in drug delivery in mucosal diseases (e.g. Inflammatory Bowel Disease) and how such diseases influence drug absorption and delivery. Finally, aspects of Driton’s research relate to the creation of improved (more predictive) in vitro mucosal models for use in drug discovery and delivery research. The overarching aim of Driton’s activity is to improve patient outcomes through translational drug delivery research.
