Investigating vaccine delivery via high-throughput nanoparticle-enhanced cell imaging

Project: Internally funded project

Description

The aim of this proposal is to support the start of a new, ambitious multi-disciplinary collaboration between early-career academics (an immunologist, a microfluidic engineer and a chemical nanotechnologist) aimed at the development and application of unique cellular imaging tools. Specifically, we will focus on (i) preparing novel nanoparticle bioconjugates that enables real-time multimodal imaging, (ii) prototyping a novel microfluidic platform that allows arrays of individually addressable cells to be imaged in parallel, and (iii) exploiting both (i) and (ii) to screen novel formulations of nanoparticle-based vaccine candidates.
