Short bio & current area(s) of interest
J F Pinto is Associate Professor at the Faculty of Pharmacy of University of Lisbon and holds a PhD Degree in Pharmaceutical Technology (University of London). His main interests are focused on the study of solid state of materials for pharmaceutical /medicinal applications. This encompasses the establishment of relationships between the molecular and bulk levels of materials supporting the manufacture of dosage forms (e.g. free flowing powders, granules, tablets, capsules) either by conventional or novel (e.g. 3D printing) technologies. In this respect solubility related issues and drug bioavailability are core to the work carried out in the lab. He is a member of different associations (AAPS, APV, EUFEPS, SPCF), country contact person for the EPTRI (European Pediatric Translational Research Infrastructure) and Un. Lisbon Coordinator within the PSSRC (Pharmaceutical Solid State Research Cluster).
