Our research group has been involved in several projects relating to the pharmaceutical formulation of drug actives in collaboration with industry partners throughout Ireland, the UK and the rest of the world.

Dr Laverty has experience of working within a biotechnology company (Ward Industries, Ireland) were he was responsible for the formulation and clinical testing of innovative antimicrobial veterinary products. The role also involved collaboration with veterinary practitioners (School of Veterinary Medicine University College Dublin and the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania), industrial partners (Capstan Healthcare Ltd, Dublin) and the involvement of the general public via focus groups.  In 2012, this project was awarded the Intertrade Ireland FUSION exemplar award in relation to successful work performed on the project.

Garry continues to represent Intertrade Ireland as a Graduate ambassador.  As an academic he lead a FUSION project with Mayo Healthcare (Ireland), formulating high density microbolus units for lambs which was completed in 2017.

We are always keen to discuss new industrial collaborations that are directly related to our own research in peptide-based materials or to further utilised our knowledge and expertise to help translate products for patient benefit.
