MOPhaPro—Model-Based Optimization of Pharmaceutical Processes

Researchers: Prof. Kirches (TU Braunschweig), Prof. Bock, Prof. Kostina, Dr. Potschka (all Heidelberg University)
Funding: German Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF)
Duration: Dec 2016 – Sep 2020

Providing effective, safe and affordable medication is a highly relevant and society-wide effort. MOPhaPro develops new mathematical methods to replace empirical procedures in developing and producing medications by systematic mathematical modeling of the underlying pharmaceutical process, by fast and reliable numerical simulation of process models. By making use of model-based optimization, this project help to improve identification and development aspects of the production cycle and makes highly effective medication safer, more available, and more affordable.
