About the Project
The proposed PhD project will focus on the development of a peptide-friendly approach for the preparation of nanostructured lipid carriers (NLC) using hot melt-extrusion. Lipid-based nanoparticles are an exciting carrier system that can protect peptides along the GI tract, enhance their transmucosal transport and provide controlled drug delivery. Lipid-based nanoparticles are often prepared by melt extrusion, which is a promising encapsulation method for biomacromolecules. The scientific approach of this project is therefore to develop lipid nanoparticles using biologically relevant processing conditions so that peptide structural integrity is conserved. Developed peptide-encapsulated NLCs will be characterized and peptide encapsulation efficiency, stability and therapeutic efficacy will be evaluated in vitro and in vivo. The successful candidate will be a part of a highly interdisciplinary project and have the opportunity to learn about nanoparticle synthesis, peptide formulation, biological testing and continuous manufacturing.
