Molecular Engineering to Probe the Nano-Bio Interface
Professor Sébastien Perrier is a joint appointment between the Department of Chemistry at Warwick, Warwick Medical School and the Faculty of Pharmacy at Monash University. In this inaugural lecture he will describe new approaches developed by his team to probe cell functions, in particular in the context of drug delivery.
Sébastien will discuss how the use of new chemical synthesis tools permit to design specific nanomaterials that can be used to first interrogate cell functions, then be exploited for effective drug delivery of a variety of active agents, from anticancer drugs to antibacterial compounds.
