Research project: Responsive microstructures for targeted drug delivery

Supervisors: Dr Joanna McGouran (TCD), Dr Larisa Florea (TCD), Dr Nazila Kamaly (ICL)

Julie graduated from Trinity College Dublin in 2023 with a BA in Chemistry . During her undergraduate studies, Julie completed a final year research project with the McGouran group in the Trinity Biomedical Sciences Institute focused on synthesising biologically responsive monomers. Her PhD project will focus on developing tumour responsive microstructures by combining state-of-the-art 3D fabrication and characterisation techniques with stimuli-responsive materials.

I really enjoyed my time as a member of the CDT-ACM. It provided the opportunity to gain experience with a wide range of materials characterisation techniques and to engage with the wider research community by participating in conferences and Outreach events.
