Studying the interface between materials and biology is the key to unlocking new medicines and treatments. The properties of some materials dictates that we need advanced techniques such as Raman microscopy to study these interactions. This project will install a state of the art confocal Raman microscope to enable research across pharmaceutical projects as diverse as mRNA vaccines to 3D-printed personalised medicines and fundamental interactions of drug particles with our gut biology. These projects will lead to better medicines by design, increasing our understanding of how medicines work, and enabling entirely new types of personalised medicines for the future.
