Alexander von Humboldt-Stipendiatin, Dr. Ji forscht am Lehrstuhl Thermodynamik

Frau Dr. Yuanhui Ji hat im Jahr 2011 eines der sehr begehrten und renommierten Stipendien der Alexander von Humboldt-Stiftung erhalten und forscht seitdem am Lehrstuhl Thermodynamik der Fakultät BCI. Sie hat eine eigene Arbeitsgruppe aufgebaut und forscht auf dem Gebiet der Löslichkeit und dem Freisetzungsverhalten von kristallinen und amorphen Arzneimitteln sowie der Thermodynamik und der Stabilität von Arzneimittelformulierungen. Dr. Ji hat während ihres bisherigen Aufenthaltes in Dortmund 11 Beiträge in namhaften Journalen veröffentlicht sowie ihre Forschungsergebnisse auf 18 Konferenzen vorgestellt. Frau Ji wird ab Juni 2016 eine Professur an der Southeast University in Nanjing, China übernehmen. Wir gratulieren herzlich!


Dr. Yuanhui Ji received her Bachelor and PhD degree in Chemical Engineering in 2004 and 2010 from Nanjing University of Technology, P. R. China. She was then a postdoctoral research fellow in Luleå University of Technology, Sweden since July of 2010.

Dr. Ji was awarded the very prestigious Alexander von Humboldt-Foundation in 2011. Since then she is working in the research group of Prof. Dr. Gabriele Sadowski at TU Dortmund and performed the research on the dissolution of pharmaceutical compounds (drugs). She successfully built up a research group in that field and co-supervised two PhD students and several master students. The main focus of this group is research on dissolution and release behavior of crystalline and amorphous drugs as well as on the thermodynamics and stability of amorphous drug/polymer formulations. Dr. Ji combined a non-equilibrium thermodynamic model with a thermodynamically-correct description of drug's chemical potential to analyze and predict the dissolution behavior of drugs and drug formulations in buffer and bio-relevant media.

Her work is highly-recognized in the thermodynamic and pharmaceutical community. She already published 24 original research articles in highly-ranked scientific journals in which 11 articles were published during her research stay in Dortmund. She contributed to numerous conferences (18 oral or poster presentations) in both, chemical engineering and pharmaceutics and got always positive feedback from academia as well as from industry. Due to her important scientific contributions, she was invited to attend the 63rd Meeting of Nobel Laureates in Lindau, Germany in 2013. She is working on a collaboration project with AbbVie Deutschland GmbH & Co. KG since 2015. Besides this she managed to grow up her four-year-old son which shows her remarkable human and management qualities.

Dr. Ji was awarded the Recruitment Program for Young Professionals (also called "1000 Young Talent Program of China") from Chinese Government in March of 2016 and she will be professor at the Southeast University, Nanjing, P. R. China starting from June of 2016. After that, she very much wants to stay in long-term contact and collaborations with Prof. Dr. Sadowski and TU Dortmund.
