Drug Delivery Research Getting Media Coverage

NanoclusterResearch led by UT Austin Chemical Engineering Professors Johnston, Truskett and Maynard on a new form of proteins that could improve drug delivery has recently been featured in ACS Nano and Nanomedicine.

“The interest in this work at scientific meetings and in the scientific media has been intense,” said Professor Keith Johnston.

The team’s breakthough could improve treatments for cancer and other diseases, as well as overcome some of the largest challenges in therapeutics: delivering drugs to patients safely, easily and more effectively.
