Follicular delivery


Selective targeting of the pilosebaceous unit

  • We have demonstrated that polymeric micelles can be used to preferentially delivery drugs to the pilosebaceous unit.
  • This enables targeted therapy of diseases such as acne and provides a means to reduce off-site side effects.
  • We have developed an innovative method to extract the intact pilosebaceous unit from the skin that enables direct quantification of drug in the skin appendage.
