Hi, my name is Shasheen Payoe and I am a Doctoral Researcher in the Department of Life Sciences, the division of Biosciences. My current research falls into the ever-expanding field of Pharmacology and in particular the field of Nanomedicine. The general aim of my research is to determine the biological safety of a range of nanoscale objects, commonly termed nanoparticles, for their potential use in nanoparticle-based drug delivery systems. To assess nanoparticle biosafety, I utilise in vivo, in vitro and other biological research methodologies.
