This research program focuses on the development of nano-, micro-, and macroscale therapeutic delivery systems for drug, biologics, and vaccine delivery.
We have developed an ocular drug delivery Nanowafer, to treat ocular injuries and diseases. Nanowafer delivers drugs in a controlled manner and we have demonstrated enhanced therapeutic efficacy in animal models targeting eye injuries, corneal neovascularization, dry eye, and eye infections.
In another direction, we are developing Nanofabricated vaccine delivery systems with enhanced efficacy and stability.
Our research program is funded by NIH, DOD, and CPRIT
