Doroty Codoni received her Master’s degree in Pharmaceutical Chemistry and Technology from University of Camerino in 2009. Her thesis focused on developing a new in-vitro method to assess the mucoadhesion of hydrophilic polymers using acoustic spectroscopy. In 2009 she moved to UK for her PhD in School of Pharmacy at UEA. The project investigates the properties of hydrated forms of stearoyl macrogolglycerides and the possibility of using the gels for mucoadhesive protein/peptide delivery systems. In addition, the study demonstrated the ability of the novel stearoyl macrogolglycerides gels to form self-assembled nanoparticles which showed the potential to be used as carrier systems for protein/peptide delivery. She defended her thesis in January 2014. In October 2013 she joined Procarta as research scientist.
