Researcher in Nanomedicine, currently working at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, Maryland, USA.
Research Interests: Drug delivery, Nanomaterials, Cancer, Immunology, Polymers, Bacteria
Biography: Priyanka Ray is a researcher in nanomedicine currently working at the University of Maryland. She has received her Ph.D. from Universite Paris -XI CNRS UMR 8000 where she worked on the synthesis of calixarenes and metallic nanoparticles using radiation techniques. She then worked at NDSU under the NIH CoBRE center for pancreatic cancer research where her research focussed on the development of a library of stimuli-responsive polymers for targeted therapy of various cancer models. She specializes in drug delivery, fabrication of nanomaterials, polymeric particles and novel biomaterials and composites for cancer therapy, bactericidal applications as well as diagnosis of infectious diseases. Apart from material science and chemical synthesis, she has vast experience in molecular and cell biology including cell culture, immunology, microbiology, and related immunological and molecular assays as well as ex vivo and in vivo studies.
