Melissa Guada, PhD

I graduated with a PhD in Pharmacy from University of Navarra, Spain. My PhD work involved in development of a portfolio of lipid nanosystems for oral peptide delivery. My current research includes drug re-positioning/therapeutic switching aided by novel delivery technologies and/or by switching route of administration.
