Layer-by-Layer nanoparticles for targeted delivery to brain tumors

Layer-by-layer assembly of nanoparticles provides a customizable platform for the delivery of diverse therapeutic combinations. Layers can be engineered to modulate drug release, and outer layers can be interchanged to increase affinity for cancer cells and functionalized to promote transport through the blood brain barrier. My research aims to leverage this versatility to develop libraries of nanoparticles in order to identify optimized treatments for glioblastoma.
