UW Bioengineering associate professor Dr. Suzie Pun and her lab’s research in drug delivery was featured in a recent UW 360 video segment. In the video, Dr. Pun explains that current drugs are made of small molecules which diffuse quickly within the body but may not effectively treat certain diseases and injuries, particularly those affecting the central nervous system. Dr. Pun’s group is developing methods to transport the “next stage” of drugs, which consist of of larger molecules such as proteins and can more effectively target complex diseases.
