Kost Lab

Our research is at the interface of chemical engineering, biotechnology, nanotechnology and biomaterialstodevelop polymeric systems for controlled drug/gene delivery. 

A major focus is the study and development of systems to deliver drugs, proteins and nucleotides targeted to specific tissues, cells and subcellular organelles at controlled rates. 
Our research has advanced understanding of transport phenomena in polymers and biological systems and has led to the development of medical devices and technologies for treatment of diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and psoriasis.Furthermore, we studyand develop approaches based on decorated gold nanoparticles to harvest, concentrate and detect low molecular weight biomarker for disease detection.
