CBNS Researcher awarded grant to improve the delivery efficiency of nanomedicines to tumour tissue
Grants and Awards | May 23, 2020

Dr Changkui Fu was awarded a $645,205 NHMRC Emerging Leadership Investigator grant for his project titled Improving the Delivery Efficiency of Nanomedicines to Tumour Tissue.

Dr Fu and his UQ team seek to use this research program to develop improved nanomedicines for treating cancer. This will be achieved by targeting the poor delivery efficiency that currently hinders the translation of existing nanomedicines from laboratory to clinic. Successful completion will result in new nanomedicines that effectively target the tumour tissue and display superior therapeutic efficacy, and that will ultimately be developed into new treatments that improve patient outcomes.
