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.

Kenneth Ruud is a professor of theoretical chemistry at the University of Tromsø - The Arctic University of Norway (Norway) and the Director General of the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment. He received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Oslo in 1998 (supervisor Trygve Helgaker) and spent 2 years as a postdoctoral fellow in San Diego with Peter Taylor before moving to Tromsø in 2001. His main research interests are development of new ab initio methods for the study of molecular properties for non-relativistic and relativistic methods. Additional interests include solvent effects (continuum and QM/MM methods) and vibronic and relativistic effects. He is an author of several quantum chemistry program: Dalton, Dirac, ReSpect, and OpenRSP.
