[RESEARCH INSIDER] Improving Drug Penetration Through Nose-to-Brain Delivery

Research Insider this week gets up close with Sara Wong, who is in her third year pursuing her PhD in Neuroscience, at the University of Nottingham UK. She is researching how to improve intranasal administration of oxytocin, dubbed as the “love hormone". Oxytocin has potential therapeutic use in disorders that display socio-behaviour deficits such as autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) and schizophrenia. Research Insider also identifies the areas of United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) which the research covers and its impact.
