My research focuses on the clinical translation of polymeric nanodrugs for various types of cancers. I am particularly interested in developing treatments that eliminate multi-drug resistant cancers and prevent recurrence in patients subjected to highly intensive chemotherapy. One area of focus is to treat blood cancers such as (i) Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML), which is highly lethal in children and adults & (ii) Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (NHL). The aim here is to co-administer multiple drugs via a single system and improve survival rates of cancer therapy with reduced toxicity. I am also interested in developing topical formulations for treating lesions that occur in the skin when exposed to excessive sunlight. If left untreated, such lesions can progress to metastatic squamous cell carcinoma (SCC - the second most common form of skin cancer).
