Led by Professor Shirley (Xiao Yu) Wu, our research is centered on advanced pharmaceutics and drug delivery technologies. The goal of our research is to develop novel drug delivery strategies and systems to enhance treatment of major diseases such as cancer & diabetes.
Innovative approaches have been undertaken to achieve this goal by integrating multidisciplinary techniques and knowledge including micro- and nanotechnology, chemistry, computer simulation, engineering, pharmaceutics, pharmacology, and oncology. Our research program is highly interdisciplinary which bridges bio-sciences, materials sciences, physical sciences with clinical applications.
