Drug Delivery to the Eye
Current methods of drug delivery to the eye, such as eyedrops and injections, have low bioavailiability and carry vision-altering side effects. I am studying novel drug delivery systems and techniques to the eye. These new technologies aim to delivery therapeutic agents in a targeted manner. This will allow for sustained release of drug, lower doses due to higher bioavailability, and decrease side effects.
