Researchers Prof Thomas Davis
Brief description A thorough understanding of how nanoparticles interact with biological systems is imperative if advances are to be made in using nanotechnology for therapeutic applications. Fundamental aspects of nanoparticle transport, targeting and cell uptake will be investigated. Novel nanoparticulate systems will be designed for the delivery of both an endogenous signalling molecule and genes to cells. The Laureate will inform future optimal design criteria for bespoke nanoparticle delivery systems.
