Protected droplets create a new transport route for medicines

Researchers from several universities, including ECFP, have completed an innovative study which firmly links the structure of microgels to the controlled release of liquid droplets coated in these particles. The discovery could revolutionise methods of targeting medicines to specific locations within the body.

Design principles for hand sanitisers

A paper from ECFP demonstrates how soft matter physics can be used to form a framework to guide the design of formulations with desirable properties.
