Associate Professor Kunn Hadinoto Ong joined the School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering in 2007. He received his bachelor degree in chemical engineering from the University of Washington (Seattle, USA) in 2000 and his doctoral degree also in chemical engineering in 2004 from Purdue University (West Lafayette, USA). His research interests are in the area of particle technology with an emphasis on its applications in sustainable pharmaceutical manufacturing, inhaled delivery of nanomedicines, and nutraceutical food product processing.
Research interests:

1) Development of sustainable preparation methods of solid dosage form of nanopharmaceuticals

2) Inhaled delivery of nano-antibiotics for chronic lung infection therapy against Pseudomonas aeruginosa biofilm

3) Development of nutraceutical food products (e.g. probiotics, medicinal herbs)

4) Lipid-polymer hybrid nanoparticles as a new generation drug delivery platform

5) Flow behaviors of powders in pharmaceutically relevant processes (e.g. crystallizer, granulator, dryer)
  • Development of Workflow for Direct Continuous Crystallization of Therapeutic Monoclonal Antibody from CHO Cell Culture's Supernatant
