Colloidal/Nanoparticle Systems 

Bioprocessing & Colloidal Systems Laboratory

The BCS group synthesizes and characterizes nanoparticles and nanocolloidal systems designed for efficient delivery of bioactive components (i.e. vitamins, antioxidants, antifungals, etc.). Controlled-release, safety and bioavailability studies are performed to insure that application-specific (i.e. food, cosmetic or pharmaceutical) criteria for the designed delivery system are met.
