We look forward to welcoming our invited speakers at this half day symposium on drug delivery and microscopy.

Keynote speaker: Professor Cameron Alexander, School of Pharmacy, University of Nottingham will be speaking on 

"Synthetic polymers and biological responses"

Abstract: Polymers which can change their conformation in response to  external stimuli are now widely studied for potential applications in biology, engineering and medicine. However, there is also a growing interest in developing materials which can respond to biological stimuli, or which can exploit biological mechanisms to acquire new properties or change existing behaviour. This talk will include some recent work on polymers which respond to stimuli for applications in drug delivery, sensing and  microbiology,and will also consider how prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells can respond in turn. The interplay between synthetic and biological responses is not always as it is expected to be ....
