The Nanopharmaceutics group within the Institute for Science and Technology for Medicine and School of Pharmacy was set up by Dr Clare Hoskins. The group consists of academics, PhD students and MPhil students. The focus of our work is to fabricate novel nano-sized systems for the formulation and delivery agents of interest both in the fields of nanomedicine and environmental nanoscience.
