Nanoparticles for neurological imaging/therapy

Creating nanoparticles that can cross the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and deliver contrast or therapeutics to the brain is a challenging new project in the Nyström Group. We are just now initializing this effort using advanced polymer nanoparticles and are looking to hire a post doc with expertise in polymer preparation and drug delivery applications.
