Current Research Activities

Medical and Health Sciences incl Neurosciences

Currently, we are working on a couple of research projects in which we investigate the effect of different nanoparticle to efficiently labelle stem cells for tracking purpose. We also investigating the effect of novel nanoparticles that proposed to have anticancer properties.
