Jitender Madan

Major areas of research include Self-assembled Supramolecular systems viz. liposomes, niosomes, cyclodextrin, nano- & micro-particles and solid-lipid nanoparticles. The focus is centered onto the exploitation of US FDA approved biomaterials in combination with other potential lipids and polymers to develop the innovative dosage forms and drug delivery systems in order to improve the bioavailability, stability, safety (tolerance) and patient-compliance. Whilst a wide range of applications are being taken up, the special emphasis is given to augment the aqueous solubility and bioavailability of anticancer drugs using polymer-drug conjugates. Moreover, we emphasized on design, synthesis and development of ligand conjugated stealth nanoconstructs for delivery and targeting of anticancer drugs in cancer cells both in vitro and in vivo.
