Research Project: Bioactive materials for antibacterial therapeutics in the lung
Rachel McKendry (UCL), Alex Porter (Imperial)

Tim graduated with a first class honours degree in Biochemistry with Immunology from Newcastle University. His research investigates the development of novel biomaterials in the treatment of pulmonary infections. In particular, he assesses the potential of polymer particles in the transportation of metal species in the lung, to treat patients presenting with Tuberculosis. Tim aims to optimise and functionalise this technology to maximise patient outcome and quality of life.
