Project Title:
Drug delivery approaches for pharmaceutical intervention to control myopia
Supervisor:CHAU Ying
Co-Supervisor:CHAU Ying
Project Description:Student will research current and emerging drugs for treating myopia, and will design appropriate drug delivery depots to effectively deliver the drugs with attention to patient compliance. Students need to take safety training required by the department before conducting experiments
