 Biography
Research Interest :

1) To improve pharmacotherapy for alcohol and tobacco addiction recovery by creating a transdermal codrug dosage form 
2) To increase understanding of the transdermal codrug as a viable drug-delivery option for other therapies. A codrug or mutual prodrug consists of two synergistic drugs chemically linked together, in order to improve the drug delivery properties of one or both drugs. Transdermal prodrugs and drug combination patches are extensively studied, and a practical augmentation of these two delivery options is the transdermal codrug.
