She received her MSc on the subject of colon targeted microspheres in 2003, followed by a PhD about fluorescently-labeled nanoparticles and their interaction with lung cells in 2008 from Istanbul University, Faculty of Pharmacy. During her PhD studies, she held a 1-year visiting scientist post at King`s College London funded by Marie Curie Host Fellowship for Early Stage Training in the 6th Framework Programme of the European Commission. In respect to this, she was awarded an additional professional qualification, Euro-PhD in Advanced Drug Delivery, certified by Galenos Network & Saarland University, Saarbrucken, Germany. She started The School of Pharmacy, University of London in March 2008 as a post-doc for Prof Oya Alpar to perform studies on vaccine formulations. In her second post-doc position, she joined Dr Catherine Tuleu`s group as a Teaching and Research Fellow at UCL School of Pharmacy, Department of Pharmaceutics, Centre for Paediatric Pharmacy Research to work in the field of paediatric pharmaceutics and drug delivery. Her fellowship was funded by UK NIHR Medicines for Children Research Network (MCRN) from June 2009 to September 2012. As main part of her MCRN role as formulation research fellow, she worked closely with the MCRN Clinical Study Groups and provided pharmaceutical expertise in the development of patient-friendly formulations and appropriate trials supplies for the success of studies in children. She was appointed as Lecturer in Pharmaceutics to develop a research agenda in geriatric pharmaceutics in October 2012.

Research Summary

Dr Mine Orlu Gul prioritises patient-centred drug delivery by translating high quality basic research into clinical benefit via improved treatments and interventions. With a background in paediatric pharmaceutics and drug delivery, her main interest is at the interface between clinical pharmacy and pharmaceutics enabling older patients to have access to safe and effective dosage forms. The demographic trend is moving towards a society with an increasing percentage of people above 65 years of age. The increase in life expectancy is a great achievement. However, it brings specific health and medication needs. The therapeutic approaches should not only focus on efficacy, safety and quality of a drug therapy but also aim for improving the quality of life, dosage form convenience, ease of use and so the level of patient compliance. The heterogeneity of geriatric population represents a major challenge. Hence, a more individualized approach should be brought into geriatric drug delivery. Dr Orlu Gul`s current projects are based on developing tailored formulations considering the effect of ageing on physiological and functional capacity.
