Targeted removal of blood cancer cells from mixed cell populations by cell recognition with matching particle imprints. Materials Chemistry Frontiers, 4(1), 197-205. https://doi.org/10.1039/c9qm00531e

We report a new approach for separation of blood cancer cells from healthy white blood cells based on cell recognition by surface functionalised particle imprints. We prepared polymeric particle imprints from a layer of suspension of monodisperse PMM...

© 2019 American Chemical Society. Biofilms are prevalent in chronic wounds and once formed are very hard to remove, which is associated with poor outcomes and high mortality rates. Biofilms are comprised of surface-attached bacteria embedded in an ex...

Breathing new life into old antibiotics: Overcoming antibacterial resistance by antibiotic-loaded nanogel carriers with cationic surface functionality (2019)
Journal Article
Weldrick, P. J., Iveson, S., Hardman, M. J., & Paunov, V. N. (2019). Breathing new life into old antibiotics: Overcoming antibacterial resistance by antibiotic-loaded nanogel carriers with cationic surface functionality. Nanoscale, 11(21), 10472-10485. https://doi.org/10.1039/c8nr10022e

Multidrug-resistant pathogens are prevalent in chronic wounds. There is an urgent need to develop novel antimicrobials and formulation strategies that can overcome antibiotic resistance and provide a safe alternative to traditional antibiotics. This...

Amplified antimicrobial action of chlorhexidine encapsulated in PDAC-functionalized acrylate copolymer nanogel carriers (2018)
Journal Article

We have developed and tested a novel functionalised nanocarrier for chlorhexidine (CHX) which provides a very strong enhancement of its antimicrobial action. The nanocarrier was based on lightly-cross-linked acrylate copolymer nanogel particles loade...
