Harnessing bispecific antibodies to target immunologically stealth particles

Joshua J Glass

University of Melbourne

Joshua is a final year PhD candidate in Cellular Immunology at the University of Melbourne, Australia. Based in the HIV Vaccines Laboratory, Joshua's current research examines the interaction of nanomaterials with human immune cells, with a goal toward developing novel vaccines for HIV and influenza. With a background in cancer biology and small molecule drug discovery, Joshua applies these skills to investigate the biomedical applications of nanomaterials. Joshua obtained his undergraduate studies at the University of New South Wales, Australia, where he studied Bachelors of Science (Hons I, Pharmacology) and Commerce.


Although essential for human health, the innate immune system represents a major biological barrier to the medical applications of nano-engineered particles. Opsonisation and phagocytosis sequester particles from the... [ view full abstract ]
