M.Sc Thesis Project: The Nanomedicines and Theranostics group is offering an M.Sc thesis project position on Temperature-Responsive and Multi-Drug-Loaded Liposomes for Tumor Targeted Combination Therapy. The project aims at developing stimuli-responsive liposomes loaded with optimized combinations of hydrophilic and hydrophobic drugs, and evaluating their therapeutic potential in several in vitro and in vivo setups, including clinically relevant mouse models of pancreatic and colon cancer (for ultrasound-mediated heating and magnetic fluid hyperthermia (MFH), respectively). The overall objective of this work is to contribute to the development of better systems and strategies for drug targeting to tumors, and to come up with new (combination) concepts to really improve the treatment of cancer patients. Further information regarding the offer can be found here.
