Transport analysis in drug and gene delivery

Drug and gene delivery involves the design of delivery vehicles,  analysis of their transport in tissues and cells, and controlled release of drugs and genes. Our research in this area focuses on understanding mechanisms of transport, identification of major barriers to transport, and development of new approaches to improve  the transport.  Our research covers transport of small molecules, macromolecules, nanoparticles, viruses, and bacteria in solid tumors and the eyes for improving treatment of cancer and glaucoma.
