Nanoreactors & Nanomedicine
The Wilson group employs polymer synthesis, protein engineering and nanoscience to construct well-defined nano-devices. These are used as artificial organelles to control catalytic processes and as smart materials for drug delivery and tissue repair.
Adaptive microreactors as cell mimics
One of the key features developed by Nature during evolution is compart-mentalisation. This process allows the physical separation of processes and components present in eukaryotic cells. Placing reaction pathways and components in separate compartments allows the cell to maintain different types of (non-compatible) environments in close proximity. (more)
