My work centers around the development and testing of novel ways of treating ocular diseases. I have focused on utilizing contact lenses as a means to deliver pharmaceuticals to the eye, including delivery of antibiotics, anti-allergy and anti-inflammatory agents. I am interested in the development of other types of drug delivery systems for the treatment of infectious, inflammatory and allergic diseases of the eye, including development of novel eye drops and new biomaterials.
