Research description

I am a Senior Research Associate at the Cambridge Nanoscience Centre where I have undertaken several interdisciplinary projects aiming to decipher the molecular processes involved in Parkinson’s disease or to improve the efficacy and safety of drugs to treat challenging diseases such as brain cancer and tuberculosis.
I also joined the NanoForum strategic network of the University of Cambridge as facilitator to foster interdisciplinary research in nanomedicine.
I have worked in collaboration with MedImmune-AstraZeneca since October 2014 to apply cutting-edge research in peptide formulation.
I aim to develop safer and more effective treatments in cancer therapy using targeted drug delivery and combination therapy.
