Prof. Dr. ZHANG Jiwen, now serves as the principal investigator in Shanghai institute of Materia Medica (SIMM), Chinese Academy of Science. He has carried out the interdisciplinary research by establishing cooperation with research team at home and abroad. His team utilized primarily the synchrotron to establish quantitative methods for characterizing the irregular and dynamic structure of DDS, and started a new area as Structure Pharmaceutics, focusing on the 3D structure of pharmaceutical dosage forms and particulate systems or excipients. His team is also specialized in supramolecular systems made of cyclodextrins, like CD-MOFs and derivative materials, for controlled release and target drug delivery systems. Aiming at the evaluation of DDS, he has established the pharmacokinetics theory for the sustained and controlled-release systems, putting forward the quantitative method for optimizing the formulation of the sustained and controlled-release systems, and has designed new formulation such as biomimetic DDS. DPI, osmotic pump systems and nano-particulate systems are the top dosage forms to this team.
