Staff Contact

Steven Zullo, Ph.D.


The drug and gene delivery program supports the research and development of new and improved technologies for the controlled and targeted release of therapeutic agents. Areas of emphasis include: the development of new delivery vehicles such as nanoparticles and micellar systems; energy-assisted delivery using ultrasound, electroporation, etc.; and the integration of biosensing with controlled dosage delivery using BioMEMS and other emerging technologies.

Relevant Study Sections

Biomaterials and Biointerfaces (BMBI)
Bioengineering, Technology and Surgical Sciences (BTSS)
