PhRMA Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship in Drug Delivery

Letter of Intent May 1, 2024
Submission: August 29, 2024

Award Amount: $60,000 a year for up to 2 years

The PhRMA Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship in Drug Delivery supports individuals (U.S. and non-U.S. citizens) engaged in a multidisciplinary, collaborative research training program at an accredited U.S. university that will extend their credentials in drug delivery research, including basic pharmaceutics, biopharmaceutics, pharmaceutical technology, pharmaceutical biotechnology, or biomedical engineering.

Successful proposals in Drug Delivery emphasize the quantitative understanding of the principles, pathways, and/or mechanisms underlying improved or optimized:

  • formulation composition and delivery modalities/technologies that enable more favorable transport (absorption, targeting, elimination) of drugs; and/or
  • drug dosage forms that can be manufactured to achieve higher quality, lower cost, and greater stability or flexibility.

Today’s drugs include biologics, small molecules, and cell and gene therapy. Delivering increasingly complex drugs demands thorough understanding of technologies and formulation approaches.
