Novel Drug Delivery Systems

Grant


Scheme


  • Discovery Projects

Abstract


  • significant improvements in our ability to treat and manage illnesses and trauma. The development of conducting biopolymer composites with the ability for multi-drug delivery has the potential to alleviate short comings in systemic drug delivery approaches. A number of novel drug-loaded polymeric structures capable of a diverse array of release profiles will be produced. The introduction of a conducting polymer component to enable electrically stimulated release, generated physiologically (by onset of an epileptic seizure) or by a bio-corrosion process (stents) provides innovative drug release systems powered autonomously.
