Institute of Biomedical and Biomolecular Science (IBBS)
Biomaterials and Drug Delivery Research (BADD) Group
Head of Group: Dr John Tsibouklis
The Biomaterials and Drug Delivery (BADD) research group produces cutting-edge fundamental science, which it then translates into industrially relevant products and processes.
The primary aim of the group is to investigate biomaterials for their potential use as drug carriers, bioadhesives, therapeutic (and diagnostic) agents, and surgical implants. The work on mucoadhesion has led to a number of industrially held patents and the non-stick biomaterials work has been publicised extensively by the national press on both sides of the Atlantic.
