MSPS student Priyanka Kunamaneni is working in a lab associated with novel formulation development of various drug molecules to augment their oral bioavailability. Proliposomal drug delivery is one such approach, which can bypass the presystemic first pass metabolism and enhance the oral bioavailability of highly metabolized drugs. Proliposomal drug delivery also results in drug targeting, protection of drugs from degradation in the GIT, lower drug dose, which will rule out related side effects.


The major focus of the Master of Science in Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Sciences (MSBPS) program is to provide students with a strong research focus, training and skills in order to prepare them for careers in academia, pharmaceutical industry, or public/private research institutions.
