Krzysztof J. Paluch joined University of Bradford as a Lecturer in Medicines Development and Pharmaceutical Sciences. He holds an MSc in Pharmacy from Jagiellonian University Krakòw (2005) and Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Sciences from Trinity College, University of Dublin (2011). He is a Project Management Associate (Irish Institute Project Management Ireland, 2012). His research interests focus on: screening and characterization of novel salts and co-crystals, characterization of amorphous forms, nanoparticles and spray dried microparticles. His collaborations include projects with: Trinity College Dublin, University of Silesia, University of Gdansk and others. To date, his research was funded by: Irish Research Council for Science, Engineering and Technology and Science Foundation Ireland.
