Kent Leach, an associate professor in the UC Davis Department of Biomedical Engineering, is interested in the development of pharmacologic formulations that can assist in the treatment of heart attack and stroke. Encapsulation of clot-busting drugs in a variety of vehicles has previously demonstrated significant improvement over clinically used treatment options. Leach develops new techniques to deliver these drugs which may result in viable treatment alternatives. His research in the laboratory is highly interdisciplinary, employing methods in synthetic chemistry, cellular and molecular biology, materials characterization, drug delivery and gene therapy, and in vivo imaging.
