Personal profile

Area of Expertise

Currently I am involved with Lipoprotein drug delivery research as it pertains to my training and experience with development of novel nanotechnology applications for theranostic purposes. The objective of my research is to develop lipoprotein based therapies and diagnostics. rHDL based therapy will significantly lower the off-target toxicities and will prolong the blood circulation time (Mean Residence Time) thereby increasing the selective delivery of the dose to cancer cells via SR-B1 receptor. These receptors are exclusively overexpressed on many cancer cells and extract the drug from rHDL nanoparticles without endocytosing them.
The projects in my lab will exploit recently developed technology of lipoprotein nanoparticles and will exploit unique interaction of rHDL and SR-B1 receptors for treatment of various cancers ( breast, prostate, ovarian, Ewing sarcoma, neuroblastoma, etc.). This new technology will be tested for in-vitro toxicity in various cell lines and ex-vivo 3D tissue models, and then studies will be carried out in small animal models, followed by patient-derived xenograft animal studies in collaboration with other institutions or commercial outfits.
