Optimizing drug delivery via nanotechnology : School of Anatomy & Human Biology Seminar Series Other events...
The Seminar: Nanotechnology is a valuable tool for optimizing the delivery of a drug that is disadvantaged by poor in vivo solubility and specificity of drug action. In this lecture, Lee Yong will share how her laboratory has utilized nanotechnology to promote the efficacy and specificity of the anticancer drug, paclitaxel.

The Speaker: Lee Yong obtained a BSc (Pharmacy) Hons degree at the National University of Singapore and PhD degree in pharmaceutics from the University of Manchester, UK. After 15 years with the Pharmacy Department at the National University of Singapore, she joined UWA in May 2005 to teach in the Master of Pharmacy programme. Her research focuses on understanding the mechanisms and constraints of drug delivery across biological barriers, and developing methodologies to overcome these barriers. Nanotechnology is the main enabling technology for the development of drug delivery systems in her laboratory.
Speaker(s) Winthrop Professor Lee-Yong Lim, Pharmacy Program, Deputy Head of School Biomedical, Biomolecular and Chemical Sciences, UWA
