Engineering Multifunctional Particles for Biological Applications

Grant number: DP170103331 | Funding period: 2017 - 2019



This project aims to engineer multifunctional particles, examine their biological interactions and create particles for cell targeting, cell internalisation, subcellular drug release and improved pharmacokinetics. Engineered particles are important for drug delivery in nanomedicine. Although various particle-based delivery systems have been developed, few have been commercialised, largely because of problems challenges associated with biological barriers. This project will develop a platform for the assemble of particles with tailored properties which are expected to provide insights on particle-biological interactions for particle-based therapeutic delivery.
