Controlled Protein Entry into Nanopores Characterized by Surface Optical Spectroscopies

Project: Research Fellowship

Description

This project aims to directly observe the entry/exclusion of proteins into polymer brush-functionalised nanopores using in situ optical waveguide spectroscopy. It forms one component of a larger project that aims to develop bioinspired synthetic materials that can control biomolecular transport through nanopores, and hence enable novel strategies for a range of applications, from chemical separation to drug encapsulation and delivery.
