EPSRC IRC in Targeted Delivery for Hard-to-Treat Cancers

Formation of functionalized nanoparticle

We aim to create novel, high capacity delivery vehicles with targeting capabilities. To do this we identify, design and develop optimal carrier materials with outstanding capacity and then modify their external surface chemistry to improve efficacy and targeting capabilities. These vehicles, including MOFs (metal-organic frameworks) can then be used to encapsulate and deliver hydrophobic drugs and siRNAs, mRNA and peptides.
