Dr. Belov's present research relates to the investigation of the promising and therapeutically effective routes for delivery of macromolecular drugs to the central nervous system (CNS). Through years of investigational efforts, he and his colleagues were able to demonstrate that cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) can be used for drug administration resulting in high brain penetration. Now, he's focusing on studying biophysical aspects of drug transport in the CSF, developing approaches to enhance retention of drugs in the CSF, and unveiling conduits connecting CSF and brain parenchyma.

Size dependent mechanisms of drug clearance from the cerebrospinal fluid
Role Description: The goal of this study is to develop biophysical approaches for increasing the exposure of the central nervous system and meninges to drugs dissolved in the cerebrospinal fluid.
Role: Principal Investigator
