Dr. Yellepeddi’s research interests include the development of nanotechnology-based age-appropriate pediatric formulations and model informed pediatric drug development. He is currently working on research projects involving dendrimer-based oral formulation for the postnatal therapy of cerebral palsy and development of a nasal formulation for the treatment of pediatric migraine. His future research projects include Physiologically Based Pharmacokinetic (PBPK) modeling in pediatrics, development of micro-, and nanofluidic in vitro models simulating microenvironments of various pediatric organs in normal and disease conditions. In addition, he is also interested in the pharmacokinetics of nanotechnology-based therapeutics for the treatment of various disease conditions in pediatric and adult populations
