Pharmaceutics and Drug Delivery across a range of programmes including the MPharm programme, OSPAP, MSc in Drug Delivery and MSc in Pharmaceutical Engineering. 

Particulate drug delivery systems (including liposomes, niosomes and nanoparticles) offer a range of advantages for drug delivery, but their clinical application remains under exploited. My research generates a deeper understanding of formulation attributes that govern the mechanism of action of these particulate systems for drug delivery, vaccine adjuvanticity and diagnostics. This reinforces their development and the pathway of these systems into clinical trials and application. By continued systematic development of such systems, my research provides the foundation for practical solutions and realistic options to enhance patient care on a global scale.
