My research is focused on the use of ionic liquids in medical applications. For transdermal drug delivery, ILs can enhance penetration of macromolecules like insulin through the skin, alleviating the need for painful injections. ILs also exhibit antimicrobial activity, and are particularly good at disrupting biofilms created by some bacterial species.
