Advanced Analysis of Polymersome and Exosome Hybrids for Potential Application in Therapeutics and Diagnostics

Project description

An analytical technique for biological vesicles

Synthetic vesicles such as polymersomes and hybrid biological vesicles are emerging as promising platforms for the delivery of drugs and diagnostics. However, they present significant variations in terms of stability and structure. In answer to this, the EU-funded USOME project proposes to develop an analytical fractionation technique for elucidating the structure and composition of artificial and biohybrid systems. Scientists will focus on the encapsulation of proteins and the modification of hybrid vesicles with proteins and polymers. The novel characterisation approach is expected to advance the nanotechnology field and increase the potential applications of biological vesicles in therapeutics and diagnostics.
