My current project involves employing a 3D all human ‘in vitro’ blood brain barrier (BBB) model, recently developed within our laboratories, to assess a range of ‘in house’ nanoparticles as efficient carriers to facilitate anti-glioma drug across the BBB. In parallel I am also working on investigating a panel of cell cultures derived from breast and lung cancers as well as melanoma with regard to constitutive expression of a number of genes that may be implicated in metastasis to the brain.
