Bend Research Scientist, Randy Wald, contributed to June's Pharmaceutical Technology cover article on Advances in Controlled-Release Drug Delivery.


The performance of a drug can often be optimized by controlling the rate and extent of its release in the body. As controlled-release (CR) drug-delivery systems continue to play an important role in the treatment of diseases, Pharmaceutical Technologybrought together a panel of industry experts to discuss the challenges involved when developing CR formulations and the advances made in this field. Participating in the roundtable were Randy Wald, senior research fellow at Bend Research, part of Capsugel’s Dosage Form Solutions Business Unit; Ali Rajabi-Siahboomi, PhD, vice-president and chief scientific officer, Colorcon; Leah Appel, PhD, managing partner, Green Ridge Consulting; Ninad Deshpanday, PhD, president of R&D, and Vinod Gupta, PhD, vice-president of pharmaceutical development, both at Kemwell; Anshul Gupte, PhD, Michael DeHart, PhD, and Joe Cobb, CPIP, all three from Metrics; and Anil Kane, PhD, MBA, executive director and global head of formulation sciences at Patheon.
