Cutting edge research in Mauritius in Cancer drug delivery using a combination of two or more cancer drugs into nano formulations resulting in synergistic effect and prolonged patient survival.
Preliminary tests have found that if you combine nanomicelles that contain drugs and put them together you can reach around 90% of killing of cancer cells.
DHANJAY JHURRY is the National Research Chair in Biomaterials and Drug Delivery at the Mauritius Research Council (MRC) and heads the Centre for Biomedical and Biomaterials Research (CBBR). His mainstream research is at the frontier of materials/polymer science and emerging fields such as nanotechnology and nanomedicine. He has a keen interest in the development of intelligent materials based on bio-resources such as sugar and seaweeds. Author of over 60 articles on polymers, biomaterials and nano drug delivery systems, he is the recipient of the first Best Mauritian Scientist Award in 2011 and the first Innovators Mauritius Award in 2004.
