Effershield technology wins the BioNow Project of the Year Award

The Centre for Pharmaceutical Engineering Science's Team “EfferShield” won the Bionow Project of the Year Award for 2019. Prof Anant Paradkar, Director of the Centre accepted the prestigious Award at the Mere Hotel on Thursday Nov 28th.

EfferShield: A novel approach for low sodium effervescent products was developed at the Centre for Pharmaceutical Engineering Science (CPES) at the University of Bradford and is a crystal engineering based technology. EfferShield addresses the manufacturing and packaging issues of effervescent formulations whilst also providing an alternative low sodium effervescent product. The EfferShield patent is licensed to Octopoda Innovations. CPES and Octopoda Innovations have partnered with Health Innovations and Vitrition UK for EfferShield scale-up and commercialisation. The consortium received support from Innovate UK and Leeds City Region Enterprise Zone.

The EfferShield team is led by Prof Anant Paradkar consists of Sudhir K Pagire, Sachin Korde, Niten Jadav, Suyog Aher, Azad Mohammed, Kalpana Durga, Jason Jones and Clare Campbell.

CPES is exploring global partnership opportunities for EfferShield and other technologies in the area of veterinary, pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical sectors. Innovate UK has supported market validation of CPES innovations viz EfferShield, SelfGel, FastAct and ARCage through it’s ICURe scheme.

CPES is an interdisciplinary research and industrial collaboration centre, which has expertise across the pharmaceutical sciences, chemistry and polymer engineering disciplines with an excellent reputation for developing innovative technologies, contract research and working with industry.
