Biography

Research theme: Health
Research discipline: Pharmacy
Research areas
Development of lipid and carbohydrate conjugated T-cell receptor activation inhibitors. This project aims to develop a new class of peptide-based immune-modulating agents which has the potential to treat autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. The conjugation of peptides with lipids and sugar units aims to enhance oral bioavailability.
Drug absorption studies using intestinal cell-based model or parallel artificial membrane permeability assay (PAMPA), aiming to predict oral drug absorption and investigate the absorption mechanisms by measuring the transcellular permeability across the Caco-2 intestinal cell monolayers or the non-cell based hydrophobic PAMPA membrane.
