I obtained a PhD from the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, B.C. Canada in 1985, My expertise in research covers many areas of biochemical applications. Beginning from bacterial polysaccharides, to antimicrobial peptides and then to isolation of antioxidant, anticancer and anti microbial compounds from some plants has widened my biochemical outlook. Currently my attention is focused on Polymer nano particles, liposomes, micro and macro emulsion technology used to deliver drugs, nutraceuticals and other small molecules. In drug delivery, I mainly focus on anticancer drugs and mechanism of action and antibacterial drug delivery. I have studied several types of carriers for applications in topical delivery and gastric delivery and optimized conditions for enhanced bioavailability and penetrability. My research has won several Presidential awards for research publications and SUSRED awards for research supervision. Overall 13 research grants have been administered and 19 students have earned their postgraduate degrees.
