Research Interests

Corvo has been working on the development of drug carrier systems for the delivery anti-inflammatory drugs. Systems developed were liposomes (attractive delivery systems) for the treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis and different type of nanoparticles, SOD Enzymosomes, to treat and visualize Ischaemia/Reperfusion Injury (following organ transplantation). Corvo has also been studying mechanisms of action of developed formulation and their correlation with biomarkers, tissue disposition and pharmacokinetics.
