LbL Nanoparticles For Targeted Drug Delivery
My primary objective in this project will be to optimize the
nanoparticle structure for desired pharmacokinetics and stability.
Combinatorial therapeutics (i.e. drug/adjuvant combination) will be
investigated using this nanoscopic platform as a means to sensitize and
deliver a drug of interest to specific cells. This will be done using
the LbL technique applied to nanoparticles. These functionalized layers
confer added stability to the particles and provide a versatile platform
for tuning therapeutic encapsulation and targeting.
