Grant furthers work with co-crystals

The Pharmaceutical Sciences Division team of Lian Yu, professor, Melgardt de Villiers, associate professor (CHS) and Siwei Zhang, graduate student, have been awarded funding from Pfizer, Inc. to study the thermodynamics of co-crystals.

These special crystals are formed between drugs and other safe-to-use components. There is a strong interest in using co-crystals to improve pharmaceutical properties in the drug development process.
