Targeted PEG-poly(glutamic acid) complexes for inhalation protein delivery to the lung (2019)
Journal Article
Nieto-Orellana, A., Li, H., Rosiere, R., Wauthoz, N., Williams, H., Monteiro, C., …Stolnik, S. (2019). Targeted PEG-poly(glutamic acid) complexes for inhalation protein delivery to the lung. Journal of Controlled Release, 316, 250-262. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jconrel.2019.10.012

Pulmonary delivery is increasingly seen as an attractive, non-invasive route for the delivery of forthcoming protein therapeutics. In this context, here we describe protein complexes with a new ‘complexing excipient’ - vitamin B12-targeted poly(ethyl...

Synthesis of folic acid functionalized gold nanoclusters for targeting folate receptor-positive cells (2019)
Journal Article
Liu, Z., Turyanska, L., Zamberlan, F., Pacifico, S., Bradshaw, T. D., Moro, F., …Thomas, N. R. (2019). Synthesis of folic acid functionalized gold nanoclusters for targeting folate receptor-positive cells. Nanotechnology, 30(50), https://doi.org/10.1088/1361-6528/ab437c

We report on the synthesis of water-soluble gold nanoclusters capped with polyethylene glycol (PEG)-based ligands and further functionalized with folic acid for specific cellular uptake. The dihydrolipoic acid-PEG-based ligands terminated with -OMe,... Read More about Synthesis of folic acid functionalized gold nanoclusters for targeting folate receptor-positive cells.

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...

Metabolomics of aging assessed in individual parasitoid wasps (2016)
Journal Article
Kapranas, A., Snart, C. J., Williams, H. E. L., Hardy, I. C., & Barrett, D. A. (2016). Metabolomics of aging assessed in individual parasitoid wasps. Scientific Reports, 6(1), https://doi.org/10.1038/srep34848

Metabolomics studies of low-biomass organisms, such as small insects, have previously relied on the pooling of biological samples to overcome detection limits, particularly using NMR. We show that the differentiation of metabolite profiles of individ... Read More about Metabolomics of aging assessed in individual parasitoid wasps.
