Lisa M Kaminskas 30th Lorne Cancer Conference 2018

Lisa M Kaminskas

Dr Kaminskas is a drug delivery scientist and NHMRC Career Development Fellow at the Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences. Her research is focused on understanding how chemotherapeutic drugs and therapeutic proteins can be best formulated to optimize delivery to solid and disseminated cancers, while minimizing systemic exposure and off-target toxicity. Her main interest is improving the treatment of lymphatic metastases and lung-resident cancers which are largely resistant to conventional intravenous chemotherapy. Her primary area of expertise, however, is in the development of dendritic polymers (dendrimers) as cancer directed drug delivery systems in collaboration with Melbourne-based Biotech company Starpharma Pty Ltd.
