Aim

Welcome to the Drug Delivery Lab!
Administration of free drug to treat diseases, in many cases, is associated with critical drawbacks like off-target effects and low in vivo stability. This hinders the treatment of the disease. With our versatile expertise, we aim to reduce these shortcomings. Our lab focuses on using wide range of tools and concepts such as nano- and micro-particles, hydrogels, scaffolds and 3D organoids to generate treatment for diseases like Tuberculosis and Osteoarthritis. With our translational outlook, we plan to create clinically viable therapeutic options to treat such diseases.
