Jason research focuses on the binding and uptake of Opa proteoliposomes into target cells expressing surface CEACAM receptors. He is interested in determining which cellular uptake mechanisms Opa proteoliposomes engage as well as their intracellular processing following cell entry. Liposomes are clinically useful for their ability to enhance therapeutic delivery of drug and imaging compounds to target cells, and Jason is particularly interested in exploring the potential of Opa proteoliposomes to target delivery to specific cell phenotypes.
