"My PhD project is focussing on making functionalised gold nanotubes as drug delivery carriers. This is a multidisciplinary work which includes nanoparticle synthesis/preparation, ligand modification and correlation of the physicochemical properties of gold nanoparticles with its in vivo applications. I am truly fortunate to be trained by world-leading scientists."
