Welcome at the homepage of the Phospholipid Research Center.


Phospholipids are already widely used in registered pharmaceutical formulations worldwide. However, their use could still be further extended as they might be able to replace almost all other emulsifiers and surfactants.

To build up the knowledge about phospholipids famous international scientists established the independent Phospholipid Research Center located in Heidelberg, Germany together with the companies Lipoid GmbH and Phospholipid GmbH, which is dedicated to enhance the use of various kinds of phospholipids.

The Phospholipid Research Center activities extends the possible utilization and physiological significance of phospholipids of all kinds (i.e. natural, hydrogenated, synthetic, and modified phospholipids), and combined products of phospholipids as excipients and active ingredients in pharmaceuticals.
