Welcome to the Eniola Research Group

Our research is focused on cell adhesion and drug delivery; specifically, the group's overall objective is to use knowledge of the cellular inflammatory response and blood flow hemodynamics to design bio-functionalized particles for targeted drug delivery and imaging.
