Ben is a professor of colloid and physical chemistry with industry experience in the explosives and pharmaceutical industries. His research focuses on colloids and lipid self-assembly and his group is active in developing new synchrotron-based characterization approaches for lipid and solid state systems.
Professor Boyd is currently actively investigating within the following Signature Project:
|Cubosomes as carriers for MRI contrast agents||2016||Boyd, B.; Alcaraz, N.|
|Self-assembly structure formation during the digestion of human breast milk||2015||Salentinig, S., Phan, S., Hawley, A., Boyd, B.J.|
|Selective Sequence for the Peptide-Triggered Phase Transition of Lyotropic Liquid-Crystalline Structures||2016||Liu, Q.; Dong, Y. D.; Boyd, B. J.|
|Stabilising cubosomes with Tween 80 as a step towards targeting lipid nanocarriers to the blood-brain barrier||2016||Azhari, H.; Strauss, M.; Hook, S.; Boyd, B. J.; Rizwan, S. B.|
|The precipitation behavior of poorly water-soluble drugs with an emphasis on the digestion of lipid based formulations||2016||Khan, J., Rades, T., Boyd, B.|
