currently focus on fabrication of membranes for
membrane distillation and pervaporation. The neat
step is to prepare low-fouling membranes for
protein separation and water treatment.
present interest lies on the preparation of PLGA, PLLA,
scaffolds for tissue engineering, with special
interest in GTR membranes and call-specific bone
regeneration scaffolds, for
treating periodontal disease.
present research concentrates on studying the
permeation of drug molecules in polymeric
membranes. The next step is to investigate the
effect of the polymer-solvent interactions on the
micro-structure of the formed solution.
