The main focus of research in the Ghandehari laboratory is the development of novel methods for controlled delivery of bioactive agents. Four areas are being explored: 1) Genetically engineered polymers for gene delivery; 2) Water-soluble polymers for targeted delivery; 3) Poly (amidoamine) dendrimers for oral delivery; and 4) Inorganic nanoconstructs for controlled chemical delivery.
