RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research works towards bridging the physical and biological sciences in the field of pharmaceutics to gain a better understanding of drug bioavailability and some of the reasons behind the intra-and inter-individual variability in drug exposure. Through an in vitro simulated stomach and duodenum model set-up in my lab, we have been able to explore the effect of different physiological variables and formulations on drug supersaturation/precipitation kinetics and predict trends in drug plasma concentrations under the varied conditions simulating how patients consume their medicines. The ultimate goal is to develop in vitro in vivo correlations that will guide drug product design and reduce the need for in vivo studies. Thus expediting drug product development. In addition, I am undertaking to accelerate the availability of medicines to developing countries through work on biowaiver monographs
