Centre Director to investigate future therapies using nanomedicines
Grants and Awards | May 21, 2020

CBNS Centre Director Professor Tom Davis is a recipient of an NHMRC 2020 Investigator Grant for $2,414,215. His project Novel approaches to Nanomedicines for future therapies aims to research ways to use nanomedicines to transform healthcare by targeting significant health issues such as Alzheimer’s, diabetes and Parkinson’s diseases that have mainly eluded successful therapeutic solutions. In addition, nanotechnology has the potential to significantly improve the treatment of chronic pain by repurposing analgesic medications for improved effectiveness without significant side effects. Professor Davis and his team at UQ will target these two areas of research during the next five years.
