The students gained a thorough understanding of specific experimental tools suitable for the design and physical characterization of these materials. It was a transdisciplinary education at the interface between materials science and pharmacy. The course has been organized as mini projects and case studies including a large amount of practical sessions in laboratories. It included practical extensive use of various preparation techniques (granulation, compression, film coating, dissolution) and analytical techniques (X-Ray diffraction, Raman scattering, Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC), Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), Dielectric Relaxation Spectroscopy (DRS).
