Titel of PhD thesis: Innovative techniques for the production of new "smart" drug delivery systems and proteinaceous nanocapsules

Research: Protein particles offer a new approach as drug delivery vehicles for a wide range of biomedical applications. The preparation of proteinaceous human serum albumin (HSA) nanocapsules with biocompatible plant oil cores avoiding toxic cross-linker and noxious non-aqueous liquids present a new carrier for transporting lipophilic active ingredients to the targeted organ. Furthermore, proteinaceous particles can be equipped with targeting molecules for selective binding to tumor cells.
