Stine is Postdoc at Section for Biologics at the Department of Pharmacy, University of Copenhagen. She holds a Master in Pharmaceutical Sciences from University of Copenhagen and a PhD in food biophysics from the Faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen.
Stine’s current work includes development of advanced drug delivery systems (DDS) primarily being hydrogels including permeation enhancers such as lipids, membrane modulating peptides and cell penetrating peptides. The work is with a particular focus on a detailed understanding of the physico-chemical structure of DDS, a key parameter to fully to understand their mechanistic behavior in vitro and in vivo. Also, focus is on the mechanistic behavior, safety, kinetics and dynamics of the DDS by utilisation of advanced in vitro models and in complex in vivo models.
Stine is employed on an EU project, COMPACT, where she is project leader and responsible for in vitro and in vivo methodology. In relation to this, she holds of an in vivo license which includes monitoring and approval of protocols used under the license, quality assurance of the technical skills of the people working under the license, assurance of ethical aspects in agreement with both legislation and license, yearly reporting to the Animal Experiments Inspectorate, The Ministry of Environment and Food of Denmark.
