The Advanced Drug Delivery Lab applies engineering principles to develop relevant models of health and disease and enable effective delivery of therapeutics. We focus largely on advancing intestinal and retinal tissue engineering and drug delivery.
Mechanistic Studies and Modeling of Drug Delivery
Theoretical and experimental frameworks to predict the impact of dietary lipids on the absorption and bio-availability of oral drugs.
Engineering the Intestinal Environment
In-vitro models for studying the human microbiome-gut-immune axis and transport at the intestinal mucosal barrier.

The Carrier Lab believes in the inherent dignity of all human beings, regardless of their race, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, or country of origin. We embrace diversity as a value that improves our work and improves our lives. Our lab strives to be actively anti-racist and members are expected to educate themselves, and stand against any bigotry that we may observe within the student body, institution, or our greater environment. All lab members are expected to treat others with empathy and respect, and foster an inclusive atmosphere of collaboration, open communication, and sociability. Assistance, instruction, and mentorship are expected to be freely given by all lab members to any other in need. We fully support a progressive society where everyone is valued and where science, truth, and facts matter. To that end, we expect work in our lab to be conducted ethically and honestly, and for methods and results to be fully shared with others in the lab. We take pride in the work that we do in the Carrier Lab, and always seek to keep at the forefront the broader impact that our research has and the benefits that its application may bring.
