Lidia Tajber

PhD/Associate Professor in Pharmaceutics and Pharmaceutical Technology; Trinity College Dublin, Ireland


Lidia’s research programme concentrates on the fundamental understanding of molecular interactions governing the properties and performance of pharmaceutical substances at molecular, supramolecular and formulation levels:

  • pharmaceutical ionic liquids (anti-crystal engineering)
  • multicomponentpharmaceutical systems: salts, cocrystals and amorphous materials
  • rational preformulation studies leading to quality solid-state formulations.

Lidia’s work has been funded by Science Foundation Ireland, Enterprise Ireland, Irish Research Council as well as the European Commission. She is involved in the Synthesis and Solid State Pharmaceuticals Centre, a H2020 RISE network “ORBIS” (Open Research Biopharmaceutical Internships Support)and is a management committee member of COST Action CA18112 (Mechanochemistry for Sustainable Industry). She has published around 100 high quality peer-review papers and contributed to numerous international conference presentations. She is currently serving as Director of Research in the School of pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland.
