Scholarly biography

Dr Matthew Ingram is a Principal Lecturer in Pharmaceutical Sciences in the School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sciences at the University of Brighton.

After this, he went on to join the academic staff at the University of Brighton in 2000.

Approach to teaching

I teach on a wide variety of courses, both undergraduate and postgraduate, including the four-year pharmacy degree (MPharm). I mainly teach in the areas of Pharmaceutical Sciences, data analysis and drug delivery. I aim to engage the students by making my lectures interactive, with lots of questions and answers, quite often with the latest technology but sometime with the best of the traditional methods. I support this with Powerpoint slides and, when applicable, video mini-lectures as an introductory activity.

Research interests

My research focuses upon the enhancement of therapeutic agents. This normally takes the approach of forming prodrugs and evaluating their use using in-vitro modelling, but it can take the form of looking at drug delivery systems.

Supervisory Interests

My supervisory interests are, development of prodrugs for percutaneous absorption and exploring machine learning methods for drug design.  In addition to the development of innovative e-learning tools.
