I started at the Open University in March 2011 working with David Male on transcriptional regulation of p-glycoprotein transporter on brain endothelium. Later on we began investigating gold nanoparticles for their potential for drug/gene delivery into the brain. This project was set up in partnership with Midatech Ltd. In 2013, I started to progress this work in my PhD project, which is aiming to broaden our understanding of mechanism of transport of nanoparticles into cells as well as to develop gold nanoparticles into promising delivery of oligonucleotides into the brain.
Since February 2016 I have been working on OU projects involving electron microscopy as I took up a permanent position within the Electron Microscope Suite at the Open University alongside finishing my PhD.
Nanomedicine, nanoparticles, blood-brain barrier, cell biology, electron microscopy.
Operating transmission electron microscopes and processing in vitro samples for electron microscopy.
In addition to teaching on Open University modules our academics are engaged in ground breaking research that benefits individuals and society.
