Description of research and teaching
The emphasis of my research has been geared towards the theme of development of pharmaceutically significant chemical entities of supramolecular polymers and drug conjugation, as well as macromolecular-based drug delivery system. During my M.Sc. studies at the Department of Bioengineering, University of Tokyo, I have been working with glucose decorated anticancer drug-loaded pH-responsive polymeric micelles directed to enhance targeting of glycolytics tumor via glucose transporter. Currently, I am pursuing a Ph.D. degree at the Doctoral Programme for Chemistry and Molecular Sciences (CHEMS-DP) in Tracers in Molecular Imaging (TRIM) group focusing on the development of multimodality molecular imaging tools for the evaluation of drug delivery systems (DDSs) based on cellulose nanocrystal (CNC) and lignin nanoparticles, which are an emerging green biomaterial for drug delivery applications incorporation with a non-invasive and sensitive nuclear molecular imaging methodologies, including positron emission tomography (PET) and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT).
