Pharmaceutical development and evaliuation of targeted nano-scale lipid-based delivery systems of therapeutics and imaging agents, at the pre-clinical and translational stages. Our current target organs/tissues include various solid tumors, skin and hematological cancers, as well as ischemic cardiac tissues, to provide enhanced antineoplastic efficacy, and protection against different pathological damages, respectively.
