Title

Nanomedicines and new therapeutic agents

Status

Open

Project Description

Depending on the student interest, a therapeutic area that suits our background can be selected. The disease areas include but not limited to diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, arthritis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, and prostate cancer. Once the area is selected, we will identify novel therapeutic agents discovered in our laboratory or other novel pharmacological agents to improve therapeutic outcomes of the disease. The approaches to improve therapeutic outcomes typically involve development of novel drug delivery systems such as nanoparticles, microparticles, and implants.
