Visit to Birmingham University

In the frame of our shared Royal Society Grant, I had the opportunity to visit our collaborator Paco Fernandez-Trillo labs and get to know the amazing research that this great team does. Moreover, I delivered a talk about our last findings in thermoresponsive materials for biomedical applications.

Visit of Porf. Maeda (前田先生)

We were glad to have Prof. Maeda as invited Speaker within the frame of Focus Area NanoScale. His outstanding talk entitled  “Function of Chirality-Responsive Dynamic Helical Polymers” thrilled us showing all the possible applications of chiral dynamic polymers!

ありがとうございました 前田先生!!

Our new study on capturing circulating tumor cells in exvivo samples got accepted in Polymers

The manuscript entitled “Optimizing the circulating tumor cells capture efficiency of magnetic nanogels by transferrin decoration” is now accepted in Polymers. In this follow up from our previous publication, we optimize capturing efficiency by modifying the linker between the magnetic nanogel and the targeting protein. Moreover, we perform some preliminary capturing experiments in blood samples from cancer patients.
