Therapeutic Development
Research Focus: 

Dr Young-Wook's previous work with synthetic materials for drug delivery led him to question why the field of drug delivery has, to the present time, focused on the development of artificial materials rather than naturally derived biomaterials. His long-term research goal is the development of biologically based systems to enhance the efficacy of bioactive molecules without the need for synthetic materials.
