Dennis Diaz was awarded a Research Scholarship from the translational cancer research centre, Sydney Vital. Dennis will work on developing a targeted photodynamic therapy for breast cancer using biological nanoparticles.
Welcome to our new group member, PhD candidate Febrina Carolina Sandra (Sandra). Sandra has a Master’s in Pharmacy from the Korea University, Seoul, South Korea, with specialisation in nano drug delivery systems. Sandra will work on the development of biological nanoparticles for the targeted co-delivery of therapeutics in cancer treatment under the supervision of Andrew and Anwar Sunna.
Andrew was awarded a 2018 Early Career Fellowship from the Cancer Institute New South Wales (CINSW) to fund the research project,‘Biological nanoparticles for the targeted delivery and light-triggered release of drugs’. This project aims to develop novel protein nanocages for the targeted co-delivery and controlled release of therapeutics in the multimodal treatment of cancer.
