This new edition brings you up-to-date on the role of pharmaceutics and its future paradigms in the design of medicines. Contributions from over 30 international thought leaders cover the core disciplines of pharmaceutics and the impact of biotechnology, gene therapy, and cell therapy on current findings. Modern Pharmaceutics helps you stay current with the basic sciences, systems, applications, and advances in drug development—from materials used in formulations and dosage form design and manufacture, to testing in clinical trials.

Improve research and development strategies with brand new content on:

• methods of in vivo imaging of dosage forms

• excipients, tablets, and aerosols—from physical chemistry to dosage form

• solid state drug delivery

• biotechnology-based pharmaceuticals

• modern evaluation techniques for medicinal products

• pharmaceutical nanotechnology

• pharmaceutical physics

• pediatric and geriatric medication

• routes of administration

• paradigms in pharmaceutical research
