Group leader: Professor Dr. Natasa Skalko-Basnet
Main research activities: Focused interests on drug delivery systems as means for improved drug bioavailability and therapeutic outcome. The group aims at gaining a deeper understanding of transport processes of drugs and drug delivery systems destined for oral, parenteral and topical route of drug administration, enabling improved therapeutic drug effects and reduced toxic effects by increasing the drug targeting. Specific focus on localized treatment of skin and vaginal infections, thereof reducing the systemic exposure to antimicrobial substances. In addition, delivery of natural origin and novel antimicrobials are the pipelines in current research.
