Celebrating PVP in Pharma
PVP has a long pedigree of use in both medicinal and pharma applications – and with innovations continuing to emerge, its use shows no sign of slowing down.

Dr Krizia M Karry’s pharma career began over a decade ago in Puerto Rico. Despite initially focusing on PAT applications, process development and tech transfer, today she is fascinated by the use of excipients in the industry and works as a Global Technical Marketing Manager for Pharma Solutions, at BASF. Here, Dr Karry explains what led her to join BASF and the lessons she has learned about one of the industry’s most popular excipients: PVP.
How did you join BASF?
After several years in the industry I decided to pursue graduate studies in the US. I focused my thesis on pharma challenges at the time: formulation and process design for poorly soluble compounds, and multipurpose manufacturing platforms for different types of dosage forms.
As soon as I graduated, I returned to the pharma industry where, in collaboration with R&D scientists, I scaled-up, transferred and validated processes for manufacturing tablets via high shear wet granulation, roller compaction, fluid bed coating and continuous manufacturing platforms. Interestingly, irrespective of the processing platform, one thing was clear: despite being the most crucial part of a pharmaceutical product, raw materials were the least understood systems! In realizing this I decided to join BASF, a technically-driven excipient manufacturer that is resourceful in generating a body of knowledge on its excipients to then share with its customers, my “previous” pharma peers.
