Welcome to the Drug Delivery Lab!
Administration of free drug to treat diseases, in many cases, is associated with critical drawbacks like off-target effects and low in vivo stability. This hinders the treatment of the disease. With our versatile expertise, we aim to reduce these shortcomings. Our lab focuses on using wide range of tools and concepts ranging from biomaterials to microfluidics to generate treatments for diseases like Tuberculosis, Osteoarthritis and Influenza in the long term. With our translational outlook, we plan to create therapeutic options to treat such diseases.
