Group receive major funding from EPSRC to develop peptide-like hydrogels for combined HIV-contraceptive therapy

We are excited to announce support from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) to develop of peptide-like hydrogels for use as a long-acting injectable delivery platform for combined HIV-contraceptive drug delivery.

Total support (£766,542) will allow further development of our peptide-mimetic platforms in a key healthcare area in collaboration with our co-investigators at the School of Pharmacy Queen’s University Belfast (Prof Karl Malcolm, Dr Katharina Edkins, Dr Louise Carson and Prof Helen McCarthy.
