Modulation of Permeability of Biological Barriers

Biological barriers such as skin, nail, mucous membrane, blood brain barrier etc are meant to protect us from external environment. However, modulation of their permeability nature in a safe and reversible way is often necessary to achieve delivery of therapeutic agents that are otherwise poorly permeable across the biological barriers. The research focus is to develop chemical and physical approaches/technologies that could overcome the barrier property of biological membranes and deliver therapeutically effective amounts of drug into the systemic circulation or any organ/tissue of interest.
