Outstanding Master's Thesis/Report
Bradi Jones receives her 2004 award for Outstanding Thesis from Vice Provost and Dean of Graduate Studies Victoria Rodríguez
BRADI L. JONES - Pharmacy. Ms. Jones' thesis, Investigation of Pulmonary and Oral Delivery of Itraconazole Produced by Evaporative Precipitation into Aqueous Solution (EPAS) and Spray-Freezing into Liquid (SFL) Technology in a Murine Model, is the first in vivo stud of nanoparticle technologies developed in the College of Pharmacy. Her research demonstrates that these technologies are capable of overcoming absorption problems commonly encountered with poorly soluble drugs and promises to lead to more effective and less toxic treatments for a variety of diseases, particularly serious systemic pulmonary fungal infections. It is expected that Ms. Jones' work will lead to clinical trials and commercial development in the future. Thesis supervisor: Robert L. Talbert.
