Hemodialysis vascular access dysfunction and treatment; Drug Delivery

Current Research

Drug Delivery-
(i) Novel drug delivery methods to promote hemodialysis vascular access function.

(ii) Novel drug delivery method to decrease breast cancer recurrence.

(iii) Development of biodegradable and biocompatible nerve guide conduits that utilize pharmacologic and physical means to promote nerve regeneration.

Utilization of magnetic resonance imaging to monitor vascular function in vivo.
