Harnessing human blood to examine bio-nano interactions at the cellular level

Joshua J Glass

University of Melbourne

Josh is a final year PhD candidate in Immunology at the University of Melbourne, Australia. His current research involves the development of novel vaccines for HIV and influenza, examination of antibody targeting to improve the specificity of therapeutic delivery, and defining the interaction of nanomaterials with primary human immune cells. With a background in cancer biology and small molecule drug discovery, he now applies these skills to investigate the biomedical applications of nanomaterials. Josh obtained his undergraduate studies at the University of New South Wales, Australia, where he completed Bachelors of Science (Hons, Pharmacology) and Commerce.


Aim: The capacity to predict interactions between nanomaterials and primary human cells will benefit the rational design of novel nano medicines. However, these fundamental relationships have not been adequately defined. By... [ view full abstract ]
