Research Interests:

Drug delivery, brain delivery, sustained release, polymeric micelles, exosomes, inorganic nano particles, surface engineering for selective cell targeting and remotely actuated theranostic drug delivery systems

Research Description:

Sokolsky-Papkov’s current research centers on design of nano-based drug delivery systems. My research utilizes several platform nanoparticles based technologies (polymeric micelles, cell derived exosomes and inorganic nanoparticles) and is focused on engineering treatment modalities for drug delivery to primary brain cancers and brain metastases.
