Small Molecule Delivery & Nutraceuticals
Understand the self-assembly of carrier molecules and utilize them to develop efficient delivery vehicles for small molecules and nutraceuticals. These molecules are non-covalently encapsulated in carriers or developed in a pro-drug format. Strategies for controlled release and targeted delivery to specific cells and tissues are being developed. Impact areas include oncology, liver diseases such as NASH, and food-based products such as nutraceuticals.
