Research Summary

Dr. ZHANG’s current research interests are in the fundamentals and characterizations of the solid state, optimization of the solid-state properties by pharmaceutical crystallology (e.g. cocrystals, amorphous and coamorphous), nanotechnology-based drug delivery systems (e.g. nanoemulsions, nanocrystals and nanosuspensions) as well as novel pharmaceutical techniques (e.g. spray drying, freeze drying, and supercritical fluid technologies). In addition to fundamental researches, Dr. ZHANG also devotes himself in pharmaceutical industry and focuses on the formation development & process optimization. Dr. ZHANG’s researches in the above fields have generated over 40 original research papers (SCI) and more than 30 China patents. He is member of AAPS (American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists) and also serving as journal reviewer for more than 10 international peer reviewed journals (e.g. Crystal Growth & Design, Molecular Pharmaceutics, International Journal of Pharmaceutics, etc).
