We have always been keen to elicit patients’, relatives’, carers’ and healthcare professionals’ opinions in relation to our research. This not only improves the design of our work but highlights the importance of these key stakeholders in making decisions relating to the development of medicines and their use.

We are currently seeking patient and carers opinions on the use of our peptide nanotube platform as a drug delivery platform for improving the delivery of cancer drugs in partnership with the Brain Tumour Charity’s Research Involvement Network. We hope to have such results published as a research paper in 2019.

The significance of our research was reflected by interest from national and international media outlets including BBC, RTE, UTV television and radio, abc News, The Belfast Telegraph, The Irish Times and WTOP radio Washington D.C.
