Layer-by-Layer Nanoparticles for Delivering Combination Therapies

Layer-by-layer nanoparticles are a promising modality for the targeted delivery of multiple therapeutic agents, which is particularly beneficial in instances of developed resistance to chemotherapies for cancer. My research aims to elucidate how the surface chemistry and structure of layer-by-layer nanoparticles affect their intracellular trafficking, which will enable the design of drug delivery vehicles for delivering site-specific combination therapies.
