Kai Slaughter

PhD Candidate, 2019 - Present


My project is focused on colloidal drug aggregates which are nanoparticles formed by spontaneous self-assembly of drugs in aqueous solution. The drug-rich nature of these particles suggests their potential as an effective drug delivery vehicle. I will research strategies to efficiently deliver these particles into cells and explore how they can be used to enable delivery of other co-assembled therapeutics.
