Description of the thesis topic

Our group is actively working in the field of nanoscience for biomedical applications. We have recently developed the concept of supramolecular dendrimers for drug delivery. In this thesis the candidate will synthesize, characterize and evaluate various new amphiphilic dendrimers. These dendrimers are composed of a hydrophobic entity and a hydrophilic part. They will be synthesized by the chemistry of "click". Their abilities to form nano-assemblies and encapsulate drugs will be studied for their size, morphology and stability for cancer therapy.

Work Context

CINaM is a joint research institute of CNRS and Aix-Marseille University. CINaM is composed of about 150 people and 5 departments and is located on the Luminy Campus in Marseille (France).
The hired person will work under the scientific responsibility of Dr. Ling PENG in the Department of Molecular Engineering and Functional Materials (IMMF). This department has 21 researchers and teacher-researchers, mainly chemists.

Constraints and risks

Hygiene and Safety requirement related to the handling of chemical and biochemical products. The chemistry experiments will be carried out in the equipped and functional laboratory.
