Abstract :

Gelatin-Eudragit L100 nanoparticles of wet size range 170-563 nm were prepared by two step dissolvation method and the effect of different concentrations of eudragit L100 and emulsifying agent - sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS) - on the particle size were studied.

Biography :

Lomas Tomar has done masters in Biotechnology and received Ph.D degree in Biomedical Engineering from I.I.T, Delhi, India. At present he is working as SARChI postdoctoral fellow at WITS Advanced Drug Delivery Platform, University of the Witwatersrand, Johaanesburg, S.A. He has quite a number of research papers in international journals and conferences, two patents and a couple of awards to his credit. One of his research projects was awarded ?Best project of IITD? by IITD Alumni Association. His research interests are synthesis of polymeric micro and nanoparticles, with an application focus on oral delivery of protein and peptides.
