What happens to proteins when they interact with particles with nanometre-scale dimensions like quantum dots, carbon nanotubes and graphene? Tethered biomacromolecules like enzymes and antibodies are at the heart of assays (e.g., the antibodies used in ELISA), biosensors (e.g., glucose oxidase in third-generation glucose biosensors), and emerging therapeutic technologies (e.g., magnetic nanoparticles for hyperthermal therapy). However, surface texture and chemistry, electrostatics,…Continue

Polymers are widely used as biomaterials due to their easy design and preparation, variety of structures and interesting biomimetic properties. Especially in the field of drug delivery, polymeric systems have played an important role since they can deliver therapeutic agents directly to the intended site of action, with improved efficacy. Polymer-drug systems can provide controlled release of both hydrophilic and hydrophobic drugs over long time periods while minimizing unwanted side effects…Continue

Electrospinning is currently the most commonly used method for making nanofibres, often from polymer solutions. Rotorspinning is a novel method that uses only centrifugal force to form a polymer nanofibre. The method works equally well with polymer melts and in the current project we will evaluate the effects of processing parameters on fibre properties. The project aims to benchmark this novel nanofibre processing technology against traditional electrospinning technology and aims to use the…Continue

A PhD opportunity in developing novel, optical fibre-based optical tweezers is available in the groups of Dr L. Paterson and Dr W.N. MacPherson.
Optical manipulation (or optical trapping or tweezing) enables particles from tens of nanometres to tens of microns in diameter to be picked up and moved using only light, but typically relies on focusing the tweezing laser beam through a high numerical aperture microscope objective lens.
The aim of this project is to develop…
