Our lab’s vision

Our vision at The Lab for Cancer Drug Delivery & Cell Based Technologies is to exploit biological and engineering knowledge and expertise to design novel medical solutions by means of drug-delivery, cell-based and cell-free therapies, and biomedical and tissue engineering. In recent years the lab has focused on 4 main areas: I) Cell-based therapy for treating cancer and diabetes; II) Drug delivery systems for treating cancer and HIV/AIDS; III) Cancer gene therapy; and IV) Cardiovascular tissue engineering. Overall, our contribution to these fields has been widely recognized and reported in reputable scientific journals. Our work was cited over 1,600 times having an H-Index of 22 (Google Scholar). Along with our five published patents, our work provides materials, knowledge and techniques that can largely impact the medical world and better the human condition.
