EPSRC Pump Priming Project: Developing a new Drug Discovery Programme

Project: Internally funded project

Project Details


This pump-priming project investigated the adsorption of cell-penetrating peptides (CPPs) onto silica nanoparticles, with the longer term aim being the development of a drug delivery system that can identify and deliver its active cargo to target cell types.

The results of this study will be presented in a paper, which is currently in preparation. Experimental work is ongoing, testing the consequences of the adsorption results found thus far.
