CNS Drug Delivery and Barrier Modelling

The CNSBM group work with drug delivery to the brain. We investigate permeation mechanisms of drug compounds and develop artificial brain barriers for in vitro testing.

Work in the Lab

Research focus

The main focus of the CNSBM group is to make new approaches for drug delivery to the brain. There have been a marked increase in diagnosed brain diseases over the last decades, however new technologies for brain drug delivery are lacking behind.
“Brain drug delivery, and especially understanding of the brain barriers and how these can be overcome, is a huge challenge. Our hope is that a better understanding of barrier properties and uptake mechanisms will lead to new treatments of brain diseases” says Professor & Group leader Birger Brodin.
