Vacancy Information

This studentship provides an opportunity for a UK/EU national candidate to join a 3-year study program in UCL's Department of Mechanical Engineering.

The aim of this research project will be to develop an ultrasound-mediated drug delivery method that can be used to (a) release chemotherapy drug encapsulated in thermo-sensitive liposomes at the tumour site, (b) increase drug accumulation in the tumour through hyperthermia and (c) enhance the penetration of the drug through the tumour by using radiation force and microstreaming.
