ENHORABUENA Dr.Arroyo!

Juan José Arroyo ha defendido hoy, en el salón de actos del Centro de Investigación Príncipe Felipe - CIPF, su Tesis Doctoral: Polymer-based combination conjugates for the treatment of triple negative breast cancer: from rational design to preclinical evaluation, dirigida por la Dra. María Jesus Vicent y por la Dra. Ana Armiñán.

Postdoctoral Position Available at the Polymer Therapeutics Laboratory!!!

We are looking for a polymer chemist ideally with experience on NCA ROP in order to develop novel Polypeptide based carriers of different nature and topicity. These materials will be used as carriers for biomacromolecules including Adeno Viral vectors (AVV), therefore experience in conjugation chemistry will be a valuable merit. Targeted drug delivery to specific sites (including Kidney, tumor microenvironment and/or selected cancer cell types) is the final goal for the rationally designed nanocarriers.

See here for more details!!!!!
