The magic of nanotechnology

One of the main founders of chemotherapy, Paul Ehrlich first introduced the concept of targeted therapy as a “magic bullet” for tumours around 100 years ago. Aiming to devise new therapies and overcome the side-effects of chemotherapy, our research is in the same vein. We are developing new drug delivery systems, using nanotechnology, to treat cancers more quickly with less adverse effects, to improve patients’ quality of life.
