Oxford team win the Jorge Heller Journal of Controlled Release Outstanding Paper Award

The award for the paper "Increasing the Density of Nanomedicines Improves Their Ultrasound-mediated Delivery toTumours" will be presented during the CRS Award Ceremony at the 2016 CRS Annual Meeting in Seattle, Washington, U.S.A.

Robert Carlisle

Robert Carlisle is an Associate Professor, leading the Drug and Vaccine Delivery group within the BUBBL group, Institute of Biomedical Engineering, Oxford University. The group aims to achieve systemic delivery of therapies for the treatment of metastatic cancer. This has lead to development of non-viral and viral gene delivery systems and liposomal agents. Work has progressed with the application of ultrasound to enhance transfer of such therapeutics from the bloodstream into tumours and to trigger their activation and penetration once there. The work was performed within the EPSRC funded Oxford Centre for Drug Delivery Devices. A regular co-author on well-cited Journal of Controlled Release papers he is honoured to receive the award on the team’s behalf.
