Oral drug delivery

The Biomaterial Microsystems group is actively involved in the "The Danish National Research Foundation and Villum Foundation’s Center for Intelligent Drug delivery and sensing Using microcontainers and Nanomechanics - IDUN". In IDUN drug, the research focus is on the development of microcontainers for oral drug delivery.
