Cngratulations, Dr. Yajie Zhang!

On September 15, N&N Group member Yajie Zhang defended his PhD thesis, entitled “Multimodal Imaging PLGA Nanocapsules as Protein Carrier for Potential Neurorepair in Ischemic Brain“.

Yajie’s thesis was supervised by N&N Group leader Anna Roig and Anna Rosell from Vall d’Hebron Research Institute.

Congratulations to Yajie and his supervisors!

Hot off the press: paper in MDPI pharmaceutics!

The paper “MRI/Photoluminescence Dual-Modal Imaging Magnetic PLGA Nanocapsules for Theranostics” has been recently published in the January issue of the journal MDPI Pharmaceutics.

Congratulations to N&N PhD student Yajie Zhang and to Anna Roig!

This study has been carried out in collaboration with Anna Rosell group from Vall d´Hebron Research Institute in Barcelona.
