Peter Wildfong is an Associate Professor of Pharmaceutics, and has been on the faculty at Duquesne University since 2004. He received an Hons. B.Sc. (1998) in Biochemistry from McMaster University and a Ph.D. (2004) in Industrial and Physical Pharmacy, with a graduate certificate in Materials Engineering (2004) from Purdue University. His research focus is heavily oriented towards pharmaceutical materials science, where current projects seek to better understand how specific physico-chemical and structural properties of pharmaceutically relevant materials impact both large-scale manufacturing and final dosage form performance.
Developing materials informatics models that will allow prediction of mechanically activated solid state phase transformations of APIs and excipients, through the investigation of mitigating factors in high-shear induction of polymorphism and disordering.
