New Jersey Center for Engineered Particulates

Organization profile

Organization profile

The creation of advanced particulate materials and products through particle engineering is a major research focus of the New Jersey Center for Engineered Particulates (NJCEP). The center’s research combines experimental, computational and theoretical studies to achieve an understanding of particle properties at the individual particle scale to predict particle and product  behavior at the macro-scale. NJCEP research has applications in the pharmaceutical, food, cosmetics, ceramics, defense, electronics and specialty chemicals industries. Center researchers have more than a dozen granted patents. An example of a noteworthy licensed technology is a solvent-free particle coating process with applications in taste-masking and the controlled release of drugs. NJCEP is funded by federal and industry sources, including through its participation in the National Science Foundation (NSF) – Engineering Research Center, which is focused on improving pharmaceutical manufacturing processes. NJCEP has developed several pharmaceutical technology platforms, including a thin stripfilm real-time release methodology, funded by NSF and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, for delivering nano and micron-sized poorly water-soluble active ingredients for enhanced therapeutic effects. Currently NJCEP is developing patient-compliant drug-delivery vehicles for pediatric and geriatric care, with commercial applications.
