Personal profile

Area of Expertise

Dr. Dong’s research interests include pharmaceutical analysis/bioanalysis, drug formulation, and delivery. She develops novel formulation nanotechnologies to improve bioavailability of oral drugs and deliver macromolecules such as siRNAs and proteins. In addition to novel drug formulations, her lab evaluates these formulations for therapeutic efficacy (e.g. anticancer drugs), pharmacokinetics, and biodistribution. Thus, her lab has the capacity to perform bioassays for both small molecules and macromolecules. Additionally, she collaborates with the clinical pharmacy to test stability of compounding medications and Y-site compatibility.

Education/Academic qualification

BS in Industrial Analysis

MS in Applied Chemistry, East China University of Science and Technology

PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Kentucky
