Dr. Dritan Hasa joined Leicester School of Pharmacy as a VC2020 Lecturer in Pharmaceutics.
He graduated in Pharmaceutical Chemistry and Technology at the University of Trieste (Italy), and obtained his PhD based on the study of mechanochemically-induced defects in molecular crystals and stabilisation of metastable structures using polymeric excipients. He also investigated the possibility to tailor controlled-released solid forms by producing unconventional helical and laminar-shaped extrudates. Upon graduation, He spent one year working in a project that involved industrial partners. Subsequently, Dr. Hasa moved at the University of Cambridge (UK) where He developed a keen interest on the understanding of the mechanisms that govern solid-state reactions and phase transitions in crystalline solids with particular attention to cocrystals.
His current research focuses on the use of mechanochemical technologies such as ball milling and hot melt extrusion for the preparation of functional pharmaceutical materials. This is an exciting time for such green technologies: vast progress has been made in the last three decades, especially in academic research, and new areas of applications will soon impact substantially in real world applications.
Dr Hasa has a keen interest on finding new applications for pharmaceutical polymeric materials. He also performs fundamental research at issues surrounding all aspects of crystallization and polymorphism in single and multicomponent materials. The objective is to gain more knowledge on possible connections and/or differences between the solid-state and solution mechanisms of crystallization.
