My primary research interests focus on 3 key areas of Pharmaceutics and Drug delivery.
1) Design & Evaluation of hybrid biomaterials (natural and synthetic lipid/polymeric biomaterials) for formulation and drug delivery of therapeutic drug molecules:-This research incorporates a range of interdisciplinary approaches and characterization techniques at molecular and nano-scale level.
2) Targeted drug delivery strategies: Current active targeting approaches still have significant amount of drugs delivered by non-specific mechanism and thus associated unwanted effects. Use specific multifunctional drug delivery design to increase site specific drug delivery.
3) Formulation strategies for newer generation of biologics: Provide solutions to formulation problems for complex biological drugs (peptides/siRNA).
