Descrizione

I'm the Professor of Synthetic Biology in the Department of Biomedical Science at the University of Sheffield. I'm interested in research problems that require a considerable understanding of biology to tackle clinical challenges via the development of new physical tools. We tackle this by studying the specific design rules behind inter/intra molecular interactions and self-assembly of soft matter systems, often taking inspiration from biological systems such as cells and viruses. We subsequently translate these rules into the engineering of nanostructured biomaterials. This involves the detailed biological and pharmacological evaluation of these novel functional polymers for applications that range from drug and gene delivery, diagnostic, to cell and tissue engineering.
