Section 2: Research Interests and Grants

Prof. Ouyang has pioneered the integration of multi-scale modeling, artificial intelligence and big data techniques in the field of drug delivery – “computational pharmaceutics“. • Artificial intelligence (AI) of pharmaceutical formulations: to build the database of pharmaceutical formulations and predict pharmaceutical formulations by machine learning approaches; • Multi-scale modeling in drug delivery: to integrate quantum mechanics (QM), molecular dynamics (MD) and physiologically based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) modeling into drug delivery systems; • Pharmacoinformatics: big data analysis of pharmaceutical information from the literature, patent, clinical trial and marketed products.
