Congratulations to Dr Salvatore Mascia, who has been awarded the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs 2017 prize for the best start-up company founded by an Italian entrepreneur.

Salvatore gained his PhD with us, studying the Rheology and Processing of Pharmaceutical Pastes. He was part of the Paste, Particle and Polymer Processing group (P4G).

After his PhD, he moved to MIT to work with Prof. Bernhardt Trout and he is now CEO of Continuus Pharmaceuticals, which he spun out of the MIT/Novartis centre for continual processing for the manufacture of pharmaceuticals.
