ENaCt Development Continues with New PhD Research Project

The development of our ground breaking high-throughput Encapsulated Nanoscale Crystallization technology (ENaCt) will continue via a Newcastle University-based PhD CASE award with AstraZeneca.  The aim of the project is to ‘control’ the solid form of new drug-like molecules to have improved bioavailability and physical properties.

Welcome Jake Weatherston!

Indicatrix Crystallography welcomes to our newest team member Jake Weatherston.

Jake joins Indicatrix as an industrial PhD student position, in collaboration with Newcastle University, supported by the Intensive Industrial Innovation Programme (IIIP) and the European Regional Development Fund.

With plenty of industrial experience from his time at High Force Research Ltd and an MChem degree from Newcastle University, Jake will bring his expertise to bear developing new methods and industrial applications for our break-through Encapsulated Nanodroplet Crystallisation (ENaCt) technology.

We look forward to doing lots of great science together with Jake over the coming years.
