Pharmaceutical Engineering depends on close cooperations of pharmacist, process and production engineers as well as microtechnologists. Actually, 29 members from Technische Universität Braunschweig, Technische Universität Clausthal, Leibniz Universität Hannover and Fraunhofer Institute for Toxicology and Experimental Medicine conduct joint research within the PVZ. Altogether, four departments and two cross-sectional working groups representing the PVZ research concept - from active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) to effective and customized drugs - collaborate closely in multiple joint projects. The PVZ is headed by an Executive Board that is advised by an interdisciplinary Steering Committee consisting of 12 members active in the field of Pharmaceutical Engineering. The organisation is completed by a central office.
