About This PhD Project

Project Description

Research into so-called ’soft’ or organic nanomaterials has been thriving with a wide variety of compositions being explored for pharmaceutical applications. Yet, a lot remains unknown where nanoparticle-cell interactions are concerned.

This project aims to probe further into the interaction of lipid, polymer or protein-based nanomaterials with cells, including cells of the immune system. The main goal is to further understanding of nanoparticle-cell interaction and to identify the main factors that govern this relationship. This, in turn, should allow for a more systematic approach to nanomedicine design and characterisation.

This project will appeal to students from varied scientific backgrounds who have an interested in nanotechnology and its biomedical applications. The project will exploit a number of different techniques and models to improve our understanding of the pharmacology of common and novel nanomaterials.

Informal enquiries should be directed to Dr Marie-Christine Jones. Email: [Email Address Removed]
