The Centre for Drug Delivery Technology was previously known as Centre for Drug Delivery for Novel Targeting. In 2018, after restructuring in UKM, the centre has rebranded to CDDT. CDDT’s main research focuses on utilising novel strategies in designing next generation medicines. The key technologies employed include biomaterial sciences and engineering, polymer chemistry, nanotechnology, pharmaceutical technology and formulation sciences. CDDT promotes research innovation, knowledge-sharing and collaboration among multiple disciplines and thereby enhance the understanding of emerging and future drug delivery technologies, and thus improving medicine safety and efficacy.
The CDDT members contribute to Bachelor of Pharmacy teaching in all years, through the pharmaceutics modules, the research projects and the electives. The centre has also run the successfully produces Masters and PhDs in Pharmaceutics since its establishment in 2008 (it was known as CDDR), which has seen more than 50 graduates.
