EHSRC Role(s): Nanotoxicology


Research in Dr. Fiegel's laboratory focuses on the development of novel drug delivery systems for diseases of the lung, with special emphasis on infectious diseases. Through experimental studies and mathematical modeling, the laboratory designs medical aerosols with an improved ability to target the delivery of therapeutics within the lungs and explores the complex physical interactions between these delivery systems and various cells and fluids native to the lungs. The group is also investigating new ays to suppress the transmission of airborne pathogens via local variations in the lung lining fluid.
