Drug delivery is a key factor contributing to the commercial and therapeutic potential of many drugs and related products. Drug delivery underpins the development of new chemical entities, and it is the driving force behind the development of many new devices and formulation-based projects. There are many exciting drug delivery projects being undertaken in commercial organisations, universities and research institutes throughout Australia. This article describes projects in the field of lipids and oral drug delivery, protein formulation and stability, aerosol drug delivery and transdermal drug delivery which are being undertaken in the authors' laboratories. It is hoped that these projects provide some insight into the scope and breadth of drug delivery research being conducted in 'The Antipodes'.
