Professor Shen’s research is mainly focused on: 1) the development of novel drug delivery systems to improve bioavailability and reduce side effects of a variety of therapeutics, with particular interests in sustained and/or targeted brain and ophthalmic drug delivery, as well as oral drug delivery; 2) formulation development and manufacturing of advanced drug delivery systems (such as liposomes, and nanocarriers); and 3) in vitro and in vivo performance testing, as well as the development of in vitro-in vivo correlation (IVIVC) for complex dosage forms (such as microspheres, implants, and nanoparticles).
