Research Interests/Projects

Biomedical Polymer Science Group focuses on the development of smart drug delivery systems using natural and modified polysaccharides for the most effective delivering small drugs, proteins and genes to their intended sites. The design of self-assembled micro- and nanoparticulate drug delivery systems and drug conjugates (pro-drugs) with potential for decreasing toxicity, improving stability, targeted delivery and bioavailability. 
Another focus is developing novel biopolymeric materials for tissue engineering that influence the growth and assembly of tissues.
