Synthesis of carrier encapsulated phytochemical formulations and
evaluation of their efficacy in animal models In the present scenario of cancer drug resistance, phytochemicals are
potential therapeutic options as chemotherapeutics as well as
chemosensitizers. However, the therapeutic outcome of most of the
phytochemicals is hindered by their hydrophobicity and poor
bioavailability, which lead to their reduced absorption in vivo.
Encapsulation of these molecules in rationally designed drug delivery
carriers offer several pharmacological benefits. My research focuses on
synthesizing drug delivery carriers for various phytochemical
formulations and studying their efficacy in various animal models.
