The engineering and control of cell-toxic nanoparticles

Abstract:

In this project, native and functionalised mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs) are synthesised and explored for their use as antibacterial delivery vehicles. These antibacterial loaded MSNs contribute significantly to the developing field of nanomedicine. This work broadly entails nanoparticle generation, characterisation, functionalisation, nanoparticle-bacteria cell viability studies and cell confocal imaging. Silica nanoparticles possess tunable surface chemistry, are thermally stab...
