pharmaHUB now offers its research community a publicly available Excipients Knowledge Base that contains material properties and usage data that are useful for formulation development and the evaluation of formulations by regulators.

As our Excipients Knowledge Base grows, we plan to add knowledge management tools that can be used to aid formulation development and excipient evaluation and comparison.
