Research Summary

My research interest primary focus is in the field of inhalation protein and peptide drug delivery. I am currently investigating ways to improve absorption of drugs by non-invasive routes in the laboratory. I am also exploring and understanding the mechanisms of peptide and protein drug transport in vitro in cell culture models.
Other research interest include: protein formulation, pre-clinical pharmacokinetics, pulmonary toxicity, mucociliary clearance, colonic drug delivery, and microencapsulation.
