    Forskningsinteresser

    My research is focused on the development of innovative antimicrobial drug delivery systems and the in-depth elucidation of their transport routes and efficacy in vivo . I am particularly interested in adapting biopolymeric nanocarriers and their hybrids for the treatment of intracellular and topical infections. I have particular interest in DNA nanostructures and protein-based nanocarriers as multifunctional platforms for infectious disease therapy. Using conventional antibiotics and antimicrobial peptides, my past and recent research seeks to provide alternative formulations to address the growing threat of multidrug resistant pathogens.I have other experiences developing these polymers into hydrogels or nanogels and liposomes for wound healing applications.
