Introduction to the BioScience Engineering Group
The BioScience Engineering Group at The University of Cambridge is led by Prof. Nigel Slater. The group consists of researchers from a broad range of backgrounds spanning the life and physical sciences. The main focus of the group is the development of novel strategies for the manufacture, formulation and delivery of therapeutics. Currently, researchers are investigating targeted delivery strategies for DNA and viral therapeutics using a range of novel strategies, the improvement of the long term stability of biopharmaceuticals by lyophilisation and new affinity methods for their purification.
