News from Apr 20, 2016
SFB 1112 welcomes Frau Dr. Lydia Bouchet from Physical Organic Chemistry, National University of Córdoba, Argentina.
The chemist works on the project "Tacrolimus and Dexamethasone Covalent Dual Labelling for Skin Internalization Tracking with FLIM and EPR" with the group of Prof. Dr. Marcelo Calderón in the frame of SFB 1112 project Teilprojekt A04 ("Development of pH-cleavable and thermoresponsive nanogels as nanocarriers for the transdermal triggered release of drugs"). She will also closely cooperate with the SFB projects B01 ("EPR spectroscopic investigation on drug delivery and release of nanocarriers into cutaneous cells and excised skin", group of PD Dr. Martina Meinke), and project B03 ("Characterization of transport and release properties of responsive nanocarriers by fluorescence spectroscopy and localization microscopy", group of Prof. Dr. Ulrike Alexiev).
Dr. Bouchet will present her research interests with a talk in the frame of the SFB Colloquium in the current summer term on June 30, 2016. More details will be announced soon.
