Clinical/Research Interests:

     My research interests focus on development of delivery systems for pharmaceutics, cosmetics, food supplements and feed additives. The interested delivery systems include microparticles, nanoparticles, and lipid based delivery carrier, such as, lipid nanoparticles, self-emulsifying drug delivery system. The developed delivery systems aim to apply for drug and natural bioactive compounds to improve their stability and efficacy. For examples, we developed mucoadhesive nanoparticles for ocular and oral cavity as this system could enhance drug retention time, thus, increasing their bioavailability. In addition, poor bioavailability of water insoluble drug can be improved by increasing its dissolution. To solve this problem, we focus on 3 techniques; solid dispersion, nanoparticles, and self-emulsifying drug delivery system. Furthermore, chemical stability of active compounds can be improved by these delivery systems.
Recently, we also developed nanoparticles for cancer drug delivery system.
