This free workshop hosted by Queen’s University Belfast will focus on controllable and reproducible liposome and nano particle production for the controlled encapsulation and targeted delivery of nutraceuticals, APIs and biological materials.
Join us for a hands-on session, where we will demonstrate how we can produce these particles, achieve efficient loading and easily control particle sizes and shapes via microfluidic continuous flow. Tea and lunch will be provided!REGISTER NOW
