Welcome to our new PhD student Maryam
We welcome Maryam in the lab. She has received the presigous Warwick Chancellor’s International Scholarship for her studies and wiil start her PhD project at the interface between novel nanomaterials and their use as drug delivery vehicles together with Prof. Sebastien Perrier (Chemistry) and us in October 2018.
New Incubator sponsored by Warwick Cancer Centre operational
Thanks to the generous donations of funds to the Warwick Cancer Centre, we were able to aquire a new CO2 mammalian cell culture incubator for culturing cells of the intestinal mucosa.
This will enable testing the characteristics of novel nanomaterials developed by our collaborators in the Perrier lab at Warwick Chemistry, which might transport drugs through these barriers and directly to the tumour tissue for better cancer treatments.
