J. Jeff Schwegman, Ph.D.


J. Jeff Schwegman, Ph.D. iscurrently the founder and chief executive officer of AB BioTechnologies(www.ab-biotech.com) where he develops formulations, lyophilization cycles,determines residual moisture by Karl Fischer, and provides thermalcharacterization studies including freeze-dry microscopy and DSC.  Additionally, Dr. Schwegman specializes inspeaking and consulting in parenteral pre-formulation, formulation, analytical,and lyophilization of both small molecules and large biomolecules.  He also holds patents and develops newtechnologies within the lyophilization field. Dr. Schwegman received his BS in Biochemistry from Indiana University in1992 and began working at Cook Imaging in Bloomington Indiana, where he gainedexperience in analytical, formulation and process development.  In 1999 he began graduate study in theDepartment of Industrial and Physical Pharmacy at Purdue University under thedirection of Dr. Steve Nail, where his focus of research involved studyingchanges in the physical structure of biological molecules duringlyophilization.  Dr. Schwegman receivedhis PhD from Purdue University in 2003, and returned to Bloomington where heworked at Baxter Pharmaceutical Solutions as a Research Scientist in thePharmaceutical Development group.  InNovember 2005, he left Baxter and formed BioConvergence LLC with 3 otherfounders which specialized in developing new formulations and manufacturingprocesses for parenteral products.  InFebruary 2008, he left BioConvergence, which has become a successful company,to form AB BioTechnologies.  He iscurrently the course Director for a 4-day course called “LyophilizationTechnology, a Hands-On Approach”, which he teaches through SP Scientific.  He routinely lectures around the world onformulation, stabilization and process development of lyophilized products.
