Liposome versus Exosome Functionalization as Tailor-made Nanodevices for Drug Delivery
Meiyu Gai studied Biomedical Materials as a PhD student at Queen Mary University of London (London, United Kingdom) in Sep. 2014, and the PhD degree was awarded in Sep. 2018. Her PhD thesis was titled “Design and Fabrication of Micro/Nano-chamber Arrays for Drug Encapsulation and Controlled Release” and was realized in the group of Professor Gleb B. Sukhorukov. Following her PhD, she joined Professor Katharina Landfester's research group at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (Mainz, Germany) as postdoctoral researcher. Dr. Svenja Morsbach is her group leader. Meiyu is currently working in the EU project "Ves4Us", which is focused on developing a radically new platform for the efficient production and functionalization of extracellular vesicles (EVs) to enable their exploitation as tailor-made products in the fields of nanomedicine.
