Research Skills/Interests
  1. Vaccine development against ETEC associated diarrhea in swine: application of multi-epitope fusion antigen (MEFA) and genetic fusion antigens to develop multivalent vaccines against pathogenic E. coli and other bacterial and viral pathogens.
  2. Mucosal vaccines: in silico prediction and in vitro evaluation of peptides for mucosal- associated M-cell targeting.
  3. Exploiting GRAS organisms for vaccine delivery: application of edible organisms such as barker yeast for vaccine delivery.
  4. Recombinant glycoprotein production in yeasts: using barker yeast S. cerevisiae or methylotrophic P. pastoris for recombinant protein-based drug productio
  5. Applications of nano-sized particles: application of magnetic beads for cell separation, quantum dots for cell labelling.
  6. Applications of natural polymers for topical delivery: nano chitosan, nano cellulose, co‑polymer thin film for topical drug delivery on burn patients.
