SSPC researcher Dr Jay Yadav talks to silicon republic and describes how he is helping to pave a knowledge path to better pharmaceuticals.
After earning both a master’s and PhD from the National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research, SAS Nagar, a leading pharmaceutical research institute in India, Dr Jay Yadav took up a role in research and development at a pharma multinational in Hyderabad.
Here, his role was to discover novel solid forms of active pharmaceutical ingredients. Aspirin, paracetamol and ibuprofen are all examples of active pharmaceutical ingredients but Yadav was specifically looking for molecules to treat cancer. As a result of this work, he is both inventor and co-inventor of a number of patents.
Now based in Ireland, Yadav is a research fellow working under Prof Anne Marie Healy at Trinity College Dublin. Healy is co-principal investigator at SSPC, the Science Foundation Ireland research centre for pharmaceuticals. At SSPC, Yadav’s research focuses on pharmaceutical materials and the understanding of advanced processes.
