Overview

Targeted drug delivery is a strategy where medicines (drugs) are specifically delivered to the site of disease in the body. The strategy allows the drug to maintain a local therapeutic concentration at the disease site to act on the target, and avoids any interaction with the healthy tissues – which can otherwise lead to off-target side effects. In this project, we will establish novel strategies to develop bespoke cyclic peptides that bind specific cells / tissues over others with high affinity and selectivity (e.g. cancer vs healthy cells), in order to use them as delivery vehicles for drugs or for bioimaging.

This studentship is part of the Molecular Sciences for Medicine (MoSMed) Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT).
