Research Interest

Developing highly specific tumor-targeting nanocarriers (nanoliposomes and polymer-based nanoparticles) for the delivery of oligonucleotides, non-coding RNAs (i.e., siRNA, microRNA , anti-Mirs), peptides, proteins, drugs and small molecule inhibitors, Studying the role of survival pathways, including autophagy and eEF2-kinase (eEF2K) signaling and development of novel therapeutic agents (small molecule inhibitors and siRNA-based nanotherapeutics) that target these pathways and Development of these agents into clinical strategies for patients.
