The Candidate, reporting to the project leader, will work on the development of the methods of co-encapsulation of selected neuroprotective drugs and MRI contrast agents in the nanocarriers with the size below 300 nm.

The Research Assistant will be responsible for:

  • Synthesis of biocompatible polymeric nanoparticles (e.g. PCL, PLA).
  • Encapsulation of polymeric nanoparticles and emulsion drops by the sequential adsorption technique.
  • Characterization of synthesized nanoparticle by the methods: DLS, LDA, NTA, UV-vis, fluorescence.
  • Experimental data processing, preparation of publications.
