Development of Soft Sensors for the manufacturing of drug-eluting implants

Development of Soft Sensors for the manufacturing of drug-eluting implants

  • Applications accepted all year round
  • Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Precision Engineering, Materials and Manufacturing (PEM) Research Centre, Institute of Technology, Sligo

Project Description

Medical implants are increasingly seeing the incorporation of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API) to reduce implant site complications and improve biocompatibility. Such molecules include antibacterial drugs, immunosuppressive drugs, anti-inflammatory drugs, or APIs that in various ways stimulate cellular proliferation and tissue regeneration. Implant materials suited for drug release purposes are typically bioresorbable polymers such as polylactic acid (PLA) which degrade over time into non-toxic byproducts while slowly but continuously releasing the drug trapped within its matrix. Ideally the polymer provides initial mechanical support (e.g. cardiovascular stent, bone fixation screw etc.) and degrades completely over time as the host tissue heal and the implant is no longer required.
The incorporation of drug into polymer can be done in a number of different ways but Hot Melt Extrusion (HME) has a number of advantages over other methods including: enhanced bioavailability of poorly soluble drugs; fewer processing steps; less scale-up issues resulting in a shorter development time; possible automation of the production line; reduction of production costs and waste; a reduced time to market; less product variability and improved product quality.
However HME of such devices is still complex and expensive with long development times — not only in the formulation of the product but also in identifying suitable process conditions and adapting to variations between batches of raw materials. Processing conditions affect the degradation of the polymer, degradation of the drug, drug-polymer interaction, dispersion of the API, the crystallinity of the drug and other factors critical to mechanical properties and drug release behaviour. The effect of process settings on these factors are not well understood and the industry is still dominated by off-line quality testing in a laboratory with very slow feedback to adjusting the process parameters.
The proposed research targets this knowledge gap by aiming to use on-line process measurements, including Process Analytical Technology (PAT) to predict key final product quality characteristics in real-time during processing using mathematical modelling techniques. The successful candidate will research a variety of process sensors; set-up a data acquisition system; run plant trials; carry out a variety of product characterisation tests in the lab and explore modelling techniques capable of predicting the product quality from the available in-process data. Multivariate analysis and machine learning techniques will be explored as appropriate.
Research questions to be addressed:
1. How do extrusion processing parameters affect the quality of extruded bioresorbable API-loaded medical implants?
2. Can in-process Raman and/or NIR spectroscopy data yield real-time insight to the structure and properties of the drug-polymer systems for the production of such implants?
3. Is it possible to use this data, with or without other process data, to predict final product quality metrics in real-time with similar accuracy to conventional off-line laboratory testing?
The outcomes of the research have the potential to reduce development time and costs of new innovative medical devices with ultimate benefits to patients.

Development of ceramic coatings for next generation aeroengines

Development of ceramic coatings for next generation aeroengines

  • Friday, November 17, 2017
  • Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)
 School of Materials, University of Manchester

Project Description

The successful candidate(s) will join large research team in School of Materials, University of Manchester to develop environmental barrier coatings for next generation aeroengines. The coating research group in School of Materials has collaborated with Rolls-Royces for more than 15 years and has been involved in development of ceramic coatings for aeroengine applications, initially on thermal barrier coatings, now extend to study of environmental barrier coatings. The appointed PhD student(s) will have opportunity to collaborate with Rolls-Royce both in UK and US to study ceramic coatings being developed for the next generation aero-engine. There are two possible projects here: one project is to study mechanical properties of ceramic coatings in relation to high temperature degradation behaviour of the coating: the other project is focused on development of novel processing method for manufacture of coatings.

In this project, the student(s) will use either well established coating techniques or develop new technique for manufacture of coatings, then apply world class characterisation tools available in University of Manchester to study microstructure, mechanical properties and degradation mechanisms of the coatings after thermal exposure of the coatings to environments similar to aero-engine. The goal of the research is to extend lifetime and to enhance performance of the coatings in such demanding environments.

Funding Notes

The project is funded by Rolls Royce. Funding covers the full cost of tuition fees and annual stipend of up to £17,000.

Applicants should have or expect to achieve at least a 2.1 honours degree in Materials Science, Physics, Mechanical Engineering, Chemistry or a related subject.
