Laura works in the Nanomaterials for Biology Group led by Dr Angus Johnston. The team focuses on developing a fundamental understanding of how nanoengineered materials interact with biological systems. The goal of their work is to improve the way drugs and vaccines are delivered to cells.
Laura has two main research interests: One interest lies in sensors for intracellular trafficking of nanomaterials. Her research aims to understand how nanomaterials interact with cells and where exactly the material is located inside the cell.
Her second research interest is flow cytometry data analysis. This cell analysis technique is used to examine nanoparticle/cell interactions.
