  Development of magnetic nanoparticles for improved targeted delivery of growth factors
  Dr V Chechik
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) can be heated by applying oscillating magnetic field. MNPs can hence be used to thermally destroy biological tissue (e.g., cancer cells) by remote magnetic activation.
  Effect of nanoparticles on cellular conditions in lymphocytes and germ cells in vitro
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof D Anderson, Dr M Najafzadeh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of metals such as silver (Ag), gold (Au) and copper (Cu) as nanoparticles (NPs) and other chemicals such as Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) (Najafzadeh et al., 2016) in medical and lifestyle applications has exponentially increased in recent years, yet little is still known about their impact on DNA and RNA in somatic as well as in germ cells (Habas et al 2018).

  Development Photothermal Nanoparticles for Sensitive Lateral Flow Assay based on for Bacteria Detection
  Prof N T K Thanh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recently, lateral flow assays (LFA) are popular diagnostic test owing to their simplicity, rapidity, portability and low cost. However, LFAs often suffer from low sensitivity of detection, pointing out the need to improve their sensitivity.
