PhD position – Mechanical force-triggered drug delivery systems combining polysaccharides and lipid nanoparticles

SL-DRT-17-0897

RESEARCH FIELD

Ultra-divided matter, Physical sciences for materials

ABSTRACT

The PhD project is inscribed in the UGA IDEX GlycoAlps devoted to explore the potential of carbohydrates notably in materials and health sciences. The design of new medical devices or drug delivery systems demands the use of innovative smart biomaterials. Polysaccharides are biopolymers of choice for these applications thanks to their biocompatibility and the tuneability of their structure and functions that can be achieved through chemical modifications. The project challenge is the design, synthesis, and characterization of innovative materials combining polysaccharides and lipid nanoparticles, for the spatial and temporal control of lipophilic drug release through a mechanical force-based stimulus (compressive or tensile force). Applicants should hold a Master in Polymer Science with strong background in characterization/rheology of interfaces and physicochemical characterizations of polymers (GPC, NMR, DLS, etc.).
