This project focuses on the stabilisation, modification, delivery and treatment of phospholipid based vesicles for applications in advanced wound care, with a focus on paediatric burns. Vesicles, commonly referred to as liposomes or nanocapsules, are attractive drug delivery composites, due to their biocompatible properties. They have the ability to entrap active compounds within their core, which can be released at the point of use, (in vivo or ex vivo) either through passive diffusion, or in response to local environmental stimulus.
