My research interests are principally concerned with the application of liposomes as a drug delivery system. I am interested in the transport properties of drugs, the required delivery rate for drugs, and how these properties affect the use of drugs for liposome-mediated intracellular delivery. I am also interested in the mechanism by which drug-carrier complexes interact with serum proteins. Specific methods and techniques used in my research include: nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), atomic force microscopy (AFM).
