Research title: Drug delivery model to inform bladder pathophysiology: a cross-institutional school of pharmacy collaboration
We aim to use an established ex vivo porcine urinary tract model to study the delivery of experimental therapeutic drugs to the different layers of the bladder. Informed by these initial drug deliveries we will investigate likely mechanisms of action at the tissue and cellular level, for the drugs investigated.
