Pharmaceutical Development

At RISE we know the entire pharmaceutical development chain, from target to patient. We can help with process development, analysis (GMP/GLP), formulation and production (GMP) of the pharmaceutical product for clinical trials, but also early risk evaluation of target and safety evaluation according to GLP.

We work with chemical process development, scaling synthesis and formulation of drugs with sometimes high chemical complexity and challenging physical-chemical properties. Drug development ranges from early discovery to late stage development and marketed products. It includes development, manufacturing and documentation according to quality and regulatory requirements.

Iterative process for optimal pharmaceuticals

The scientific process in drug development (from the identification of the active substance to a finished clinical product) is typically iterative, and our interdisciplinary way of work enables optimal problem solving and a high degree of success.

The future of pharmaceutical development

As an independent partner, we are leading several national collaborative projects aimed at understanding the challenges and proposing solutions for new types of medicines, both at the community level and the technical level. Examples of national and international projects where RISE coordinates or participates include NextBioForm, IMI/ENABLE, CAMP and Swelife-ATMP.

Social challenges such as an aging population, chronic illness and antibiotic resistant bacteria can be met by new therapies. The field covers new formulations and delivery systems for traditional drugs and biological pharmaceutic…

New method for removing pharmaceutical residues from wastewater

Pharmaceuticals do not disappear completely in the body, rather they are often composed of persistent molecules that take a long time to break down. Purifying wastewater from these is an increasingly important task. RISE, IVL and …

Guide to drug development – from target to patient

The development of a drug is an expensive and resource-intensive process and it is therefore important, from the beginning, to meticulously plan ahead for all necessary steps in the journey towards the new product. A well-structur…

Expertise and partnership in drug development

By gathering many of the functions needed for development of a potential pharmaceutical candidate under one roof, RISE offers a unique partnership in drug discovery and development to all instances, ranging from small university-a…

European collaboration accelerates new antibiotic development

Antimicrobial resistance is a major global threat to public health, and infections caused by resistant bacteria are on the rise. The consequences of this are loss of life and colossal costs: in the EU alone, costs are estimated at…
