Prodrugs and Drug Delivery

Research group

School of Pharmacy, Faculty of Health Sciences

Research in Prodrugs and Drug Delivery group focuses on the chemistry-based methods, especially prodrugs, to overcome drug delivery liabilities of problematic drugs and drug candidates. Much of the research is currently focusing on exploiting the body’s natural mechanisms for transporting amino acids and glucose, the LAT1 and GLUT1 proteins, respectively, for targeted drug delivery across the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and cancer cells that express these transporters.
