Research description

1: Application of nanotherapy to target endogenous neural stem cells in vivo for treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. 2: Application of targeted nanotherapy to control antigen-specific immune responses. 3: Exploitation of leukaemia inhibitory factor (LIF) as a therapy via the LIF-nano device. 4: Exploiting Nanog via MARCH-7, an E-3 ligase that controls the LIF receptor.
