Encapsulating Nanoparticles for Functional Coatings
PhD project supervised by Prof. S. Rimmer and Prof. P. Hatton, funded by the EPSRC [2013-2016]
Encapsulating nanoparticles of hydroxyapatite with functional polymer coatings to demonstrate an enabling technology with the possibility of opening new opportunities in medicine, dentistry and other non-health sectors. An EPSRC funded Doctoral Training Centre for Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine PhD supervised by Prof. Stephen Rimmer, Dr. Sebastian Spain and Prof. Paul Hatton.
