JARKKO RAUTIO

Professor

Vice-Head of Department
Professor of Pharmaceutical Chemistry, vice-head of the School of Pharmacy and director of the Doctoral Programme in Drug Research (DPDR).

My research is focused on the chemistry-based methods, especially prodrugs, in drug delivery and targeting. Much of the research is currently focusing on exploiting the body’s natural mechanisms for transporting nutrients, the LAT1 and GLUT1 proteins, for targeted drug delivery across the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and cancer cells that express these transporters.
