Penetration and uptake of Nanoparticles in 3D tumour spheroids (2019)
Journal Article
Tchoryk, A., Taresco, V., Argent, R., Ashford, M. B., Gellert, P., Stolnik, S., …Garnett, M. C. (2019). Penetration and uptake of Nanoparticles in 3D tumour spheroids. Bioconjugate Chemistry, 30(5), 1371-1384. https://doi.org/10.1021/acs.bioconjchem.9b00136

Animal models are effective for assessing tumour localisation of nanosystems, but difficult to use for studying penetration beyond the vasculature. Here, we have used well-characterised HCT116 colorectal cancer spheroids to study the effect of nanopa... Read More about Penetration and uptake of Nanoparticles in 3D tumour spheroids.

Stable DHLA–PEG capped PbS quantum dots: from synthesis to near-infrared biomedical imaging (2018)
Journal Article
Zamberlan, F., Turyanska, L., Patanè, A., Liu, Z., Williams, H., Fay, M., …Grabowska, A. (in press). Stable DHLA–PEG capped PbS quantum dots: from synthesis to near-infrared biomedical imaging. Journal of Materials Chemistry B, 6, https://doi.org/10.1039/c7tb02912h

The short shelf-life of water-soluble quantum dots (QDs) due to colloidal instability represents a major drawback to their exploitation. This work examines the colloidal stability of PbS nanoparticles capped with dihydrolipoic acid–polyethylene glyco...
