I am working on a project funded by Children with Cancer UK for convection enhanced delivery of various nanoplatforms of a novel temozolomide analogue (N3-propargyl) in resistant high grade children gliomas. We have developed three distinct nanoconstructs including N3-sulfobutyl ether β-cyclodextrin (SBE-β-CD) inclusion nanocomplex, N3-loaded apoferritin nanocage, and N3-SBE-β-CD-loaded nanoliposomes) and currently evaluating their pharmacokinetic, distribution and efficacy studies in rats. My research focuses on smart nanocarriers to enhance the efficacy and minimize side effects of cancer chemotherapeutics.
