Background and activities
Biological effects of polymeric nanoparticles for drug delivery - from single cell to whole body distribution
Encapsulation of drugs in biocompatible nanoparticles has shown promise in improving the efficiency and bioavailability of important therapeutics, like anti-cancer drugs and antibiotics. The process of implementing these new strategies in clinical use requires extensive characterization, optimization and development. My PhD project do therefore seek in-depth knowledge on how polymeric nanomedical particles interact with biological systems. This involves degradation, cellular uptake and toxicity, nanoparticle distribution and drug release in vivo.
