TopicStudy of structure and properties of polymeric nanoparticles for biomedical applications
AnnotationThe interest in polymeric nanoparticles has grown steadily over the past decades. Drug delivery of therapeutic molecules via polymeric nanoparticles is an application of current interest important for cancer therapy for example. Such nanoparticles can be prepared from biocompatible polymers by self-assembly process or via synthesis. Their surface can be functionalized to enhance the loading and release capabilities. This is a major challenge, especially in polymer chemistry, to achieve such property with a totally synthetic system. Different structural methods will be used, in particular small angle X-ray or neutron scattering, to establish the nanoparticle structure that provides the necessary property in the best way. The student will deepen his knowledge of polymer chemistry and physics, and become familiar with the methods for structural characterisation of polymers.
