Research Associate, Formulation R&D, Applied Research
Shravan K Mutyam researches pharmaceutical excipients and their functionalities to develop pre-clinical and clinical pharmaceutical formulations. He is involved in formulation development efforts of several drug candidates including NCEs for animal toxicology, PK-PD and bioavailability studies – specifically molecules with poor solubility and permeability by developing enabling formulations.
Mutyam designs and assists in development of preclinical formulations from lab scale to Phase I clinical formulations. He has worked with formulation development of diverse dosage forms including oral solid dosage forms (tablets and capsules), immediate release/modified release dosage forms, lipid-based formulations, maltiparticulate bead capsule formulations, solutions, suspensions, microspheres, powder in bottle, vaccines, emulsions, spray dried dispersions (SDD), self-emulsifying drug delivery systems (SEDDS), parenteral and transdermal formulations.
Mutyam received his M.S. in Chemistry from Lamar University, Beaumont, Texas and holds a certificate in Project Management (Life Sciences and Drug Development) from University of California, Berkeley Ext. He has a bachelor’s degree in pharmaceutical sciences (bachelor of pharmacy) from Osmania University, Hyderabad, India and a diploma in pharmacy from Govt. Polytechnic, Hyderabad, India.
