Queen Mary, University of London

Yuxiu Chen is a PhD student at Queen Mary, University of London. He is currently working with Dr Pavel Novak who pioneered the developing of hopping mode ion conductance microscopy. His current research involves applying this microscopy technique to the study of the internalization process of layer by layer microcapsules.


Introduction:Polyelectrolyte multilayer microcapsules represent one of the promising strategies for intracellular drug delivery. However, the underlying mechanism of cellular internalization remains poorly understood due to... [ view full abstract ]
